The Feeder Feed: variety edition

I haven’t been much inclined to post about the feeder these days, but figured it was about time to share a view or two.

You’ve seen Ray before.  He sees you, too.  Being so very visible he is as wary as a bird gets.

Though it is a little hard to make out, there is tremendous variety.

In this shot there is a male Cardinal, a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a Re-Bellied Woodpecker, 2 male American Gold Finches, and a Purple Finch.

Here is a close up of Mr. Cardinal, “Ray”, and the Grosbeak.

And some variety follows.

Remember “Moses“?

A wet, miserable Oriole.

A very young Oriole having a feather change.

Cat Bird.  They actually meow.

And then I saw that they also have whiskers.

Just sitting there being colorful.

So… lots of variety.

And they are eating because you have given donations.

Thanks!

    We have Catbirds, and some of them sound like they’re saying “MARY!”

  2. I like the Feeder Feeds. They are both entertaining and educational.

    Happy Father’s Day!

    Thank you for posting the beautiful pictures. It’s so good to see Moses, again. He was on hand last
    season, I believe, or is he a year roound resident? The Catbird is cool, I had no idea they have whiskers! Love the Orioles, too. Mr. Bunting certainly dazzles. I’ve noticed that the Cardinals are very shy, or just very wary. Really gorgeous birdz!
