First, an observation.
The Goldfinches are eating EVERYTHING. They are not in any way sticking to the thistle seed socks. I checked around a little with birders and learned that they are in serious nesting mode. Goldfinches apparently nest very late.
That said, the other types of birds all seem to be eating everyone else’s food as well. Odd.
Any way… here are a few shots of what is going on these days.
I just caught this guy, out of focus, before he took off.
Girls day out. The Grosbeaks have lunch.
This immature Red-bellied woodpecker is on the finch sock. Not great.
A couple bachelors, I think.
