So, yesterday, there were enough for a few visitors to enjoy. This morning
they again cleaned out the feeding stations, and I refilled. But now, very
few are calling from the forest. The feeder activity has slowed
dramatically. My job is almost done. Now I can begin to relax and resume my
normal feeding program.
I’ve had a few babies underfoot however. Lots of fledged purple finches
and pine siskins seem scattered everywhere I turn. I actually accidentally
bumped a fledged purple. They do blend in well on the ground.
Fortunately my dogs haven’t noticed them, as squirrels are their prime
subject when it comes to chasing.
The hummingbirds are going through about 1 1/2 gallons of nectar each
week, at least.
The Great Horned Owl family seems to have successfully stayed in the
trees and no longer are the juveniles on the ground.
Two different reliable birders spent a great deal of time in our forest
and we’re certain they heard a Pygmy Owl calling. So, I’ll try to see
what’s up with that.
Happy Birding,
