This female Mourning Dove showed up today near the bird feeders. It sat on the stump for a bit, then flew up into a tree near the feeders.
Just a couple shots at the feeder today.
This is where they park themselves, high up in a alder tree next to the house when they are spooked, or just resting.
When they decide to move back, they do so about 1-2 trees closer at a time. Eventually one gets brave enough to go to the feeder and not long after that it gets busy again.
This snapshot I thought was quite funny. A close up of a purple finch, yet in the background there is another purple finch wanting to get in on the picture.
This was part of some recording I was doing of a small mesh feeder I made for the birds this spring.
The line up at the fly-thru is long this morning. Expect long delays. Tweet us your thoughts 🙂
A spring snow storm today brings the birds to the bird feeders more than normal. I guess with the ground being snow covered, the feeders make for easy pickings. That’s ok, we get a lot of enjoyment from watching them.
Spring has sprung, the birds are feeding, next thing you know, babies be tweeting. 🙂
Just posting a couple videos to our Youtube channel, capturing a couple different birds at this new feeder I built the other day.
I quite literally made this feeeder in about 20 minutes and mounted it on a 7ft tall log from the wood pile. Within 20 minutes the birds were feeding from it. 🙂 The platform has holes cut in it with a bug screen stapled over that.
Hanging out they are, after finding the stash of black sunflower seeds I presented to them a few days ago. Each day seems to bring more birds, and different ones too.
