FEEDER BIRDS OF MAY

I’ve not seen a Western Tanager yet, nor heard a Wood-Pewee.  But some of our summer birds are on the feeders all day long.  Like the big guys from the tall trees.

The Band-tailed Pigeons, up to 20 at a time, seem to have two settings: alert look-around, or fressing at the mess.

With these birds three’s not a crowd, but ten on a sixteen-inch platform feeder is gettin’ there.

Female BH Grosbeak peeking around the feeder, sunflower husk dropping from her gross beak.

Almost any time of day is a good nap time for the local Screecher.
