Mother Cardinal Feeding Fledgling

Mrs. Cardinal

Mrs. Cardinal came back. She was eating the safflower seeds that I spilled.

Female Cardinal at suet feeder

Look on the left side of the feeder. Hopefully, I can get better pictures of her if she comes back. I took these through a window and binoculars.

Male house sparrow feeding young male. One reason to keep your feeders up in summer is so that the parent birds can feed the babies! Suet is one of the first things many birds feed their babies so it’s very important to leave it up all year.

Immature Great-Tailed Grackles and European Starlings came to eat birdseed

I maxed out at five photos and have one photo left so please see the other photo!

The starlings are here!!!

Unlike most people, I love starlings! They are colorful and fun to watch. It’s exciting to have them visit. It’s sad that people don’t like birds like European Starlings, House sparrows, Rock Pigeons, Muscovy Ducks, Canada Geese, seagulls, Cowbirds, and other birds and they feel the need to kill, trap, poison, chase, and destroy their nest, eggs and young. 😭😢

Lots of dove pictures I found.

Mourning Dove

5 inches away from a young wild Mourning Dove. The pictures were taken with a phone. I took it on video and did a screenshot.

Mr. Dove

Mr. Dove eating at one of our feeders. He was very friendly and let me get within less than 2 feet of him until the door scared him.

Young male or female House Sparrow?

See this House Sparrow every day. It looks like a female house sparrow but it has black spots near its legs. Young males don’t normally look like this. It looks to be an adult. There is another sparrow like this with balck spots only near its legs. Young males normally only have it under their chin. I saw a half-white male House Sparrow a couple of days ago. All near his tail was white.

Finch or Hummingbird?

Mourning Dove Fledgling

This Mourning Dove fledgling was being chased and pecked by a male Mourning Dove. Then finally it got the seeds.

Nap Time!

Just coming for a visit…or two or three.

He comes multiple times a day and chases the House Sparrows away from the feeder. Was also seen gathering sticks for a nest.
