I have not seen a Goldfinch in 3 weeks. This morning a male Goldfinch was in my backyard but not on the Nyjer feeder, instead he was on the hummingbird feeder. He spent 15 minutes picking around then flew up in a tree. I tried to point him in the right direction for Nyjer but he just looked at me like I was the nut.
I'm hearing nestlings chirping in the birdhouses. Already have friends with baby Bluebirds in theirs.
I have about 6 bluebird boxes out and three of them have babies. I also cut a log in two, hollowed it out and glued it back together with a 1 1/4 inch hole. Within 3 days a chickadee started nesting. I'm not quite as happy about the house finches taking over the previous years barn swallow nest but they will find another spot.
I'm on a 10 acre organic farm in McKinney. We have wrens but they stay mostly near the creek behind our house.
Wrens seem occupy both ends of the spectrum. Secretive and elusive, and a bird that will nest in the kitchen if a door is left open long enough. It is one of my favorite birds.
Mine too. They seem to have a very interesting personality. My niece had one nest in her mailbox, as well a friend of mine. I was so jealous. I also noticed that the woodpecker activity really dropped of once the weather warmed up. Is that pretty normal? We used to have 3 or 4 different kinds constantly running up and down the Silver Maples but I rarely see them now.
