Hairy Woodpeckers are year-round residents in our yard. This male looks like he picked up some seed in his bill before landing on the perch.
From June 9, 2013 - Birds and Pussy-willows
Baltimore Orioles are back and this male brings us a brilliant splash of orange each time he lands in our yard. We’ve had 3 males and 2 females eating from the orange halves and grape jelly that we put out for them.
Here’s a female Purple Finch. We’ve had as many as 3 males and 6 females at our feeders this spring.
A week later, the pussy-willow buds were covered with yellow pollen. This female Red-winged Blackbird is on a perch right above a tray feeder that holds golden safflower seed.
We didn’t have any Purple Finches in our yard all winter. They finally came back at the beginning of May. This is a male Purple Finch.
