The Peep

The Peep loves his mealworm suet!

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.

Blue Jays

Three Blue Jays eating suet

White-winged Dove eating suet

I didn’t know that doves ate suet. Google says that they don’t. We got some new birdseed with milo, millet, and basically no sunflower seeds. (the birds don’t like it) We normally buy Economy Mix Wild Bird Feed Bird Seed Blend. It has black oil sunflower seeds, striped sunflower seeds, milo, millet, wheat, and corn. The birds love it. We get white-winged doves, mourning doves, Eurasian collared doves, house sparrows, European starlings, cardinals, house finches, and blue jays. Most of the birds are eating suet now. We are getting the good birdseed today so the birds will come back.

Injured Mockingbird Returns

Injured mockingbird eating suet. He gets attacked by the adult mockingbird. They dig their claws into him as you can see the black marks. I finally got some pictures to show how bad it is. The adults are really rough at him. They attack him in mid-air, chase him and dig their claws into him. They also scratch him with their claws too. 😟😢
