#1 - I have lots of House FInches here - always do. A male and female were feeding when another female joined in.
#2 - You know, I can't recall the last time I snapped a Mockingbird. This one was all over the place.
#3 - Oh yeah, I got Mourning doves. Seems like there are one or two always moving around on the ground under the feeders. Now, and then, I'll even see one on a feeder.
#4 - I used to have this platform feeder setting on a old stump. I had the stump removed when I planted a couple of Snowball trees. So, I put it under a large cover and hung it from a young oak tree. Got a communty thing going on - a lot. Here is a female House Finch, a female House Sparrow and juvy cardinal eating from the same plate. They all got along.
I now have covers over all my feeders - drives the squirrels insane, and makes for a good show to watch - now, that could use a video, lol.
