I hope that sunflower seeds aren't too expensive, as we can't afford it, lol.Lovely photos Tabor.
Wow, hope this is a sign of spring and not just a long winter.
They don't like safflower seeds. They left here in one day; slim pickin's when I filled up with safflower.
Those look like the kind of birds not to be encouraged.
They are beauties. Here they don't stay very long. They seem to stay away from built up areas when they are breeding.
That's what's difficult about feeding birds or squirrels -- they seem to have some kind of radar, and more and more show up.
Blackbirds, starlings, grackles will all eat your wallet clean.
I believe Alfred is sending the camera crew to your house as we type. ;)That one with the purple head is astonishing. Love the color.
Are they on a migratory pass through? Always interesting to see the large bands of birds that have different but similar birds travelling together. Perhaps I am wrong but I usually think of these mixed species bands as having a destination. -- barbara
Invasion indeed. When they come round my house, I go out with a pan and a wooden spoon. They hate the noise and leave. When I fill my feeders, it lasts only a few hours so I understand the need to sell stock.
They fill my trees and fields uninvited and I can only guess that they eat the same thing my chickens search for on a daily basis. I do not put out feed for the birds but they are attracted here anyway. It is interesting each day to see a new color flit from branch to branch outside my windows.
Holy moly! It's like a scene out of "Birds!". Yikes! ;)
I love your photos - hope you can keep on feeding the birds and taking the picsBlessings from Dalamory
Glad to hear from you once again. I really like these visits. Come sit on this log and tell me what you are thinking.
