[Tweeters] Band tailed Pigeons

Having had band-tailed pigeons out here near Belfair for the past many years, they don't usually migrate until later in September. Or whenever their food supply runs out. Since I feed them and all other local birds, they've been reluctant to leave until later in the year.

At present many of my BT Pigs are dispersed for nesting and parenting duties. It was nice when the 97 from May reduced to 15-20 in mid-June.

Most of my goldfinches are leaving too now that their little ones had fledged and fattened up. Six pair and assorted kids are down to one pair and a couple of noisy babies.

Happy birding.

I don't see many band tailed pigeons in Phinney but two just landed atop a conifer near N 63rd and Dayton Ave N. A male American goldfinch visited the yard as well. Are birds moving?
