Shelley 07/24/11 07:12 pm Thanks, Marty. Fun stuff. My most frequents regulars are sparrows, mourning doves and red-breasted nuthatches, with chickadees and cardinals following closely behind.
Celeste 07/24/11 07:53 pm Lots of goldfinches, red finches, and one pair of finches that are inseparable. Of course Mr. C, our favorite Cardinal who lost most of his feathers a year ago, and most came back and that's how I recognize him. (he seems to be losing them again this year) He's such a good parent, feeding his chicks throughout the summer on our window sill. I never see a female feed, only the male. Lots of sibling rivalry between his clutches of female and male cardinals. Chickadees, and lots, and lots of robins bathing in our bird bath, and one feeding its chick who was sitting on top of a hedge outside my window. This year, I have a small group of pesty crows. Oh and a pair of squirrels who are not bringing out the best in me!!!!:))
Pamela 07/24/11 10:52 pm My husband and I have had the worse time trying to identify a large sparrow, only to finally discover it is a female Red-winged Blackbird. Now the juvies who look much like their mother are all here and wait patiently to be fed while she perches on the feeder getting seed. I love to see the fledglings "shiver" as they are being fed. The young Cardinals do the same thing.
Nancy L 07/25/11 12:40 pm Celeste, you reminded me that I haven't seen our usual squirrels around, lately. Wonder what they're doing? We also usually have 1 - 2 black squirrels.
martyc35 07/25/11 01:57 pm Nice to hear what's normal in your neighborhoods. I love the fledglings and their begging, and we currently have one white-crowned sparrow who has no tail feathers. Apparently born that way, as I doubt it was an injury. Looking online, we find that they show up every once in awhile wherever sparrows gather, so perhaps it's a non-beneficial mutation or something.
