I have not posted about the feeders in a long time.
Here are a few shots.
This finch is doing his best Veloci-Chicken imitation as he looks out for danger.
I caught sight of a Killdeer a while back. I haven’t seen one around.
Just passing through, I think.
I had guests a while back and we were sitting all of a beautiful evening on the deck.
I caught sight of a little bird swooping out in 10′ to 15′ roundtrips from the tip top of the chapel.
I wasn’t quite sure what it was, though I guessed it was a fly-catcher of some sort.
I used the camera as a telescope.
Then it obliged me by flying straight over and sitting on a feeder hanger near the deck.
It did its Robert DiNero Taxi Driver thing for about a half minute and then went back to its pinnacle.
There are entire fleets of Goldfinches right now.
They breed late in the season. All the babies are out of the nest and still begging.
They are noisy. They flap a lot.
As I write, there is a flock of Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks passing through.
I fear they are heading south.
Right now they are enjoying the black sunflower seeds which I have purchased through your donations. I will go put out some safflower as well. They like that. Perhaps some of the mixture with nuts, since they need the energy to migrate.
