BIRDS

AS THE SUMMER MOVES OUT THE WINTER BIRDS ARE MOVING IN

This time of year is always interesting at Liza and John’s Garden the summer birds have left or are in the process of departing.  Hummingbirds, Baltimore Orioles, Scarlet Tanagers, Red-winged Blackbirds, Common Grackle’s, Brown-Headed Cowbird’s, Some of the Northern Cardinals, and a few others have left for the winter.

We are now seeing lots of Juncos, Tufted Titmouse, American Goldfinch, Blue Jay’s, Purple Finch, Mourning Doves, Chickadees, Northern Cardinals, Blue birds, Chipping Sparrow, and mix of other sparrows or what ever.  Some times hard to ID when  so many are busing in and out.  We have Also seen some Carolina Wrens and house finches.  The Downey and Hairy  Woodpeckers are abundant.

Over the next few days and weeks I will be trying to photograph all the different birds and the others that show up. I am expecting to see some Red Bellied Woodpeckers, Pine Siskin, and a couple of Starlings show up.

CHARLIE BROWN

Posted by JW. 6 Comments

IT IS HAPPENING AT LISA AND JOHN’S GARDEN

Tuesday Liza heard Charlie Brown barking and opened the door to see a gray fox within inches of him. She scooped him up by his harness and called the Town officials. We also called the New Hampshire Fish and Game. We could tell that the fox was rabid because he was acting very strange and would not leave the yard. Two hours later, it was shot and we got the results that it is rabid. We had to take our dogs in for booster shots, and Charlie Brown was quarantine at our house for 10 days. Very scary. Very lucky Liza did not have any open wounds on her hands and Charlie Brown did not get bitten. Otherwise she would have had to have rabies treatment, and Charlie Brown would have been quarantine longer.

Wednesday several Eastern Bluebird’s at the feeders.  Every winter a flock of Bluebird’s returns to our feeders.  We have had them for several winters, about breeding time they go and we don’t see any except for an occasional visit by 2 or some times 3  until winter. They do feed at the seed feeders some, but mostly like our peanut-butter mix, orange flavored suet, and meal worms.

Also saw the Carolina Wren again this week. So I guess they are back for the winter. Purple Finch regular visitor, first time we have had several for a long time period.  Hopefully they are here for the winter.  Dark-eyed Junco’s have shown up saying its winter.  A few different Sparrows stopping by, Chipping Sparrow, White Throated Sparrow, and others.  Those that stay we will ID.  Hard to tell the difference when they come in groups and don’t stay  long. Have seen some Brown-headed Cow Birds and lots of other Black Birds.  Grackles and Red-wing Black Birds are migrating and only stop for a day or so to refuel. House Finch coming on a regular basis.
