WHATS GOING ON AT THE HABITAT

Posted by JW

NOT MUCH HAPPENING AROUND HERE, LOTS OF BIRDS AT THE HABITAT

*

We have had some real cold weather.  However the other day it was 46 deg. F.  Not much snow cover so the warm days allow the birds to find food without coming to the feeders.  It seems like we have more birds this winter than in the past.  So far not as many Bluebird’s but lots of Tufted Titmouse, Chickadees, American Goldfinches, Juncos, Blue Jays, Mourning Doves, Purple Finches, and Carolina Wrens.  Of course we have lots of Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers.  Red Bellied and Common Flickers also showing up.  When there is a feeding frenzy we see some sparrows and others mixed in with the Gold Finches.

Squirrel population low so far this winter.  Seeing two Grays and one Red.   Squirrel’s feeding early morning, mot seeing them the rest of the day.  If we get some heavy snow cover more will show up.  Chipmunks usually start showing up in early march.

Eastern Bluebird’s have arrived in numbers. Feeders are not large enough to accommodate them all.

Male Cardinal is always hiding in the bushes. Today he is sun bathing in the morning sun.

All the photos in this post taken in January 2015 randomly selected.  As I close this post I can see lots of activity at the feeders this morning.  If the activity continues all day the birds are preparing for the up coming snow storm.   Weather Station predicting 6 to 8 inches tomorrow.

SEE YOU NEXT TIME.

  1. You have had lots of feathered visitors this month. I guess the word is out that you have a good menu available. 🙂

    Good Morning Judy, We are known as the best place in town. Many of the birds have traveled long distances to dine here.

    Have a great day,
    John

    HI Cynthia: We do have a lot of them this year. Some times very difficult to get good shots. Too much commotion around the feeders, birds are in and out quick.

    Have a great evening,
    John
