I truly enjoy the pictures of your fine feathered friends. What type of food
do you put out to attract the Indigo Buntings and what type of habitat do they
What? No squirrel pics??? :-)
That is a terrific photo of Mr. Indigo Bunting. Nice Hummer too.
I believe you have the makings of a seriously hard-core bider!
Mr. Pewee probably eats insects.
Tail-bobbing means Mr. Pewee is more likely Mr. Eastern Phoebe, but I am not an expert. Also, you won’t see this bird eat at the feeder; it eats insects on the wing. Note the thin bill.
Thanks for the pic of the hummingbird. So beautiful! It looks like a Broad-billed Hummingbird (Cynanthus latirostris)
All the birds are just beautiful where you live
this blog is really for the birds!
Hi, Father, thank you so much for the wonderful close-up shots of the birds – I just love being able to see these ! I used to have bird feeders out-side a window here for cat-tv, but with such a tiny space around the house…..the seed droppings led to a lot of unfortunet piles of debris & bugs, too. Wish you also could post (?) the songs to each little guy. Often close to dawn, like now, I begin to hear the birds – God even gave us music every day…L
If you cut an orange in half and put the halves out in the yard or even on the window sill the orioles will not be shy in feeding from them…..they are attracted to the color orange and are absolute sugar addicts. It is not uncommon to see them drinking the sugar water from the hummingbird feeder. Here in Illinois we just see them for a few days in the spring and again in the fall as they migrate through…flash of orange and black, “See you when we get back!” I’m still waiting for the first hummer spotting here in Park Forest, Illinois….got the feeder out and loaded but winter just doesn’t seem to want to quite give up here even so late in May.
