The Seasonal Evolution of a Duck Box

I have had this Duck Box on the edge of the East Fork of the Eno River in my backyard for 7+/- years. This is the first year it served as a successful nest site for 2 species, Wood Ducks and Eastern Bluebirds. Red Shouldered Hawks on the other hand have always found the Duck Box a productive hunting perch.

New feeder bird: Dark-eyed Junco

Hoping some more juncos come! I could only get one picture.

Pine Warbler Family

We have three Pine Warblers visiting the feeders, a male, a female, and an immature!

House Finch

I have been looking for the house finches. As soon as this one appeared…so did the hawk! I’m sure the hawk was eyeing this pretty boy for a meal. I missed the shot! Looks like the hot tub is a hit.

New Resident

My husband and I purchased and put up this Screech Owl box in our yard, and in a few days, I noticed this Eastern Screech Owl peering out of it. I am hoping it decides to nest here once it finds a mate

Sleepy Screech

This Eastern Screech Owl graced my yard and owl box with its presence for a couple of weeks. I am hoping it will be back when it’s time to nest. Fingers crossed!

Spa time

Decided to try a de-icer this winter. So far everyone seems to like it.

Hello There!

While on vacation with my family I was at my grandmother’s house sitting in the grass watching all the different birds going to and from the feeder. When this adorable juvenile Dark-eyed Junco appeared in the grass in front of me. This was the first time I’ve seen a younger Junco.

Carolina Wren.

Red-tailed hawk’s first day off the nest

This Red-tailed hawk chick just fledged from its nest on a light tower at Coronation Park in downtown Toronto. It doesn’t know how to fly or manage human structures like the baseball fence from which it hung for over a half hour as it tried to wrap its head around what to do! See all 3 photos for the full story.

House Wren pokes head out of nest

This adult house wren pokes its head out of its nest to see if the coast is clear to carry on with its parental duties. It made countless repeat trips to the nest with its mouth full of insects and made my first visit to Sapsucker Woods unforgettable.
I drove to Ithaca, NY from Toronto this summer to visit Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology (yes, I’m that much of a bird nerd!) and fell in love with the lab’s 220-acre Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary.

Pigeon nest among bird deterrent spikes

This pigeon has built its nest among the spikes intended to deter it. I only had a moment to snap this one shot (hence the lousy resolution) because my bus was about to leave the station. I’ve seen this nest be active for 2 years now and I look for it every time I’m at this station.

What I love about this is how the pigeons have prevailed in spite of human intervention; their ability to adapt to even the most challenging conditions and their powerful urge to nest trumping all and any obstacles.

Eastern Bluebird Nesting

Hello Handsome

At first seeing this bird I was Ooo it’s a Summer Tanager. But with some more research I discovered this is a non breeding male Scarlet Tanager! A couple years back I was able to see the bright red one in the yard, this year a yellow one appeared!

Grackle Migration!!!

We’ve only been in this house for a few years now but last year fall through winter, we got flocks of Grackles in the thousands. Later on in winter we get some Blackbirds too, but right now we only have the Grackles. I took a video and the photo in this submission is a screenshot from that video. Overall there was somewhere around 7,000 birds, it was so loud. Grackles never stop calling and with all of the Oak trees we have, acorns were falling like rain. I wonder if this will be the biggest flock this year, or if we’ll get an even larger one…

Chipping Sparrows, Northern Cardinal, Cooper’s Hawk, The Peep, House Sparrow and Mourning Doves.

There are now about 30 Chipping Sparrows!
