Florida Sandhill Crane. Some of these beauties feeding down by the lake Sunday afternoon
I have been seeing some Female Painted Buntings show up the past several days. Not as colorful as the Mails but a pretty light Green. I was looking at one that I thought was a Female, but after close examination, I believe it is a “Young Male”? The bright colors seem to be coming out on the stomach/chest area and around parts of the head. Some adult Females and some young Males, I think?
A Male and a Female, CAPE MAY WARBLER, have been checking out my Oranges, Grape Jelly, and Sweet Flowers, the past two weeks. Only the second or third time I have seen these beauties in my backyard and they have never stayed so long. I am very happy with that. I have to take my pictures thru my Sun Room window as they take off if they see any movement.
I am still being entertained by the colorful Goldfinches. They have been very plentiful this winter. Another bird that is hanging out with the Goldfinches are the Pine Siskins. Cute birds with yellow patches or streaks on their wings and tails. They are also a winter bird for Florida but I don’t remember seeing these […]
Cow Birds! They have taken over my feeders! They come in 20, 30 + and eat all of the bird seed, & scare the other poor birds away. The other birds don’t have a chance! Any ideas on how to discourage this mob?
Has anyone seen any Goldfinches lately? I have only seen one Goldfinch, a female, a couple of weeks ago for a day or two, and nothing since. Usually I have lots of them this time of the year?
I don’t see this bird very often but get a little excited when I do. The Males are the only completely red bird in North America. The Females are yellow in color, but to me, appear a light green at times. This male likes to cool off in my far back bird bath with the female on top of the hedge. These were taken October 14th. I am looking forward in seeing them again this year!
