|what a well constructed home|
It is so pleasant to have the birds around the yard. We have a beautiful pair of flickers, who do a lot of picking on the lawn. I'm not sure, but I would almost assume by their frantic activity that their young have hatched and they are feeding them.
|I'll have the window cleaner in first, next time!|
Tuesday, two pairs of rose-breasted grosbeaks arrived on the scene. The boys are a pretty pair, and feed quite contentedly together on the window sill. I'm a bit surprised by that, because they are aggressive birds and I didn't think the two males would tolerate each other in the same territory. The missuses of these gents are very plain little creatures by comparison, probably just as well, as the eye-catching men, would be 'sitting ducks' on a nest for any other creatures of prey.
I'm still waiting to see if the northern oriole will arrive back this year, although it was later on in the season before we actually saw them in the past.
We still have our usual winter assortment on the sill too: the chickadees, goldfinches, nuthatches and junkoes. The price of a bag of sunflower seed garners us a lot of enjoyment throughout the four seasons.
And that is about all I have to say for today.
