Feeder Activity

Now that spring birdsong is over, our bear-proof feeders are providing much solace. Most abundant birds are Purple Finches and Goldfinches, a lovely combination with up to 8 of each vying for positions. Also a family of Hairy Woodpeckers, Song Sparrows still singing, a few hummingbirds (everybody hereabouts has a hummingbird feeder). The family of White-breasted Nuthatches seems to have abandoned us. In the early morning up to three Wild Turkeys scratch at the feeder bases, having created an impressive dust bath on the beach path. Interestingly, I rarely encounter any of these species while doing my annual forest bird monitoring in the surrounding woods. Rebounding from last years’ population low, Chipmunks and Red Squirrels are omnipresent. This may not last long as two minks scurried by yesterday, one carrying a chipmunk!
