We came from here:http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1292419/
Lots of great stuff on the last thread.

We're on the verge of spring here! Suddenly a flock of Robins descended on the pond. Later in the day they were eating berries on the holly. A Common Flicker Joined them and some starlings too.

Thank you Mrs. Ed for the nice start to a new thread with the lovely Robins. Hahahaha, Margaret. You've spotted the rock, but I'm closer to Mrs. Ed. lol,lol. Here is my contribution for those of us that are looking forward to Spring. Not so much of the juvie bird, but the buds on the tree branches! Common Spring!

And THEN… the flock of Robins moved around to the other side of the house and devoured all the Holly Berries. They had help from a Common Flicker, Northern Cardinals, Cedar Waxwing, and piggie European Starlings. The berries are all gone!

The Robins and Cedar Waxwings usually clean up all the berries here before heading North. I have not seen very many the last few days, maybe they have already headed out. My Holly tree is still full of berries...the more for the Mockingbird, I guess.

Super photos in the last thread everyone.

Mrs Ed, thanks for the new start. I'd love to have your whole pond! The snow looks so beautiful with your birds. I do hope since you and I both have the robins that it doubles the chances of an earlier spring.

Lily, what a great capture of your hawk. Sorry that it's probably chasing off the little birds though.

Granny, love your mocker and cardinal. I've never seen one of my mockingbirds ever going near the suet. Guess there's enough berries around on the trees.

Here's some ring-necked ducks, some snow geese, a bald eagle and some ross's geese-all found at a nearby wildlife refuge.

Mrs_Ed, ~ Great opening photos!

Lily-love ~ Nice picture of the hawk with the buds on the branch, I enjoy seeing him ( Though I know what that could mean)

GrannyGrunt ~ Nice pics, Love the Mockingbirds! They are such characters! Cardnals always look so pretty, I like the picture of this one on the stump!!

Mrs_Ed ~ I've only seen the mockingbirds being bullies around the mealyworm feeder, If I don't chase him off after letting him eat some, He will keep the Bluebirds at bay and eat all the worms.
I have hollie berries, But, I don't see the robins on them much going for the berries, They pretty much scour the grass here.

ducbucln, Great photos, I especially love the eagle in the tree shot!

Granny, I just love your photos of the woodie-such a pretty one. That dee is a cutie too, looks like your suet is a winner for sure.


I'm having fun with the house finches-here's a couple.
Still have three purple finches here too.
A not-so-nice photo of a bald eagle with it's lunch. I'll spare you the photos of the eagle actually picking at the poor duck and flying back and forth in front of me to show it off.
And a Lesser Goldfinch.

Great shots of the Robins...I was seeing lots just a few weeks ago here.

Wish our hawk would sit still...it just passes thru in rush all the time! lol

Jealous that duc sees an eagle at the drop of a hat!! :)

I too wish for a Mockingbird...Have had one visit from time to time but not any regulars.

So great, job Marna, Lily & burn & GG!!

I am getting close to being out of safflower seed...probably by the end of this week or so. Still have a couple of weeks of Grey Striped Sunflower seed. I can't wait to see what stay around and maybe even if something new may show up in the spring or summer!!

Granny, I'm in love with that red-bellied wp of yours. I love all your photos but that wp is one I'd love to see in person.

Burn, great photos of all your birds. Love the bill on that hairy. Yikes, that's a bunch of pigeons.

Nanny, I'm getting anxious for my springs birds to arrive too. All but three robins have left our neighborhood and I'm not sure there are many berries left on any tree.

This bewick's wren was waiting for a chance to get to the peanuts.
Here's a dark-eyed junco-still lots of them around but the weather is getting warmer so they'll soon be leaving.
This is a California towhee that loves the nuts and the peanut butter log.

Like the others, I'm falling behind over here! Really great shots everyone, I'm enjoying them all!!

Grannygrunt, Would love to hear about suet recipe!

ducbucln, Love the Eagle photos! I have a large white hawk here who has been flying through quite a bit but I've been missing the shots because I've been recently sick and also don't know if my equipment will get a good high flight shot or not, But, I'm going to try for it eventually. ~ Does anyone know if the male hawk carries nesting material along with the female? I would think he doesn't, Which leads me to believe that the White Hawk I have here is a female as I usually always see her carrying nest material in the spring.

Wonderful pictures folks. Seeing them helps clear some of the clouds away on this dreary rainy day.

Duc, that is not the same woodpecker; I have a number of pairs of these birds that live here. None materialized today, so we will see what tomorrow brings. LOL

Iris, the suet recipe--well, it is not a carefully measured recipe. LOL I make enough for six very large pinecone feeders; two each for two of my neighbors and two for myself. I had some left over and that is what you see in these shots.

Okay: Approximate measurements: 2 pound of hog lard (not Crisco); 3 pound tub of peanut butter (any kind); fruit, this batch has raisins, dried cranberries, dried currants, peanut hearts (pieces work as well), corn meal for filler. You can add oat meal, or really anything you wish, as long as you start with the lard and tons of peanut butter, they will eat it; in fact, they will gobble it. It attracts a number of different visitors. This is not for warm weather use as it needs to be refrigerated (I stuck the pine cones into the freezer) before it is offered, and would melt readily in warm temps.

NOTE: I ALSO INCLUDED FREEZE-DRIED CRICKETS AND FREEZE-DRIED MEAL WORMS TO THIS MIXTURE. These really attract the Wrens, Chickadees and Titmice.

I just warm the lard and the peanut butter until I can mix it together, not until it reaches a runny consistency. Good luck.

Now, from yesterday, WB Nuthatch, Cardinal, Titmouse, Blue Jay and another Titmouse.

Lily_love, Thanks! The rbwp usually goes to the store bought suet cakes, But, When at the feeders, He usually always shoves the seeds out, Which I think he's after the nuts too, But, The odd part is, He does it in the platform feeder sometimes too where he can pretty much pick what he wants.
Do have plenty for birds here right now, Got .. Wrens, Doves, Bluebirds, Mockingbird, finches,cardnals,Blue Jays, junco's, titmouse, nuthatch, rbw, downy woodpecker, and hairy woodpecker. Once in a bluemoon in the early spring, I get a indigo bunting, I am so hoping that he visits this year and that I can get a good picture of him!

GrannyGrunt, loved the photos, Especially of the Blue Jay, I have them here now, But, They are so skitzy here right now that I can't get a shot of one, I barely get it in close enough to get a good view.
Thanks so much for the recipe and info on it!! I am surely going to give it a try!!

Lovely pics. Nan. Do your WBNHs nest in your nest box? Iris, I too would love to see the Pileated WP here. I too have one lone Brown headed Nuthatch visiting my suet feeder at intervals. Your pic. of one is very very nice. By the way, is that a grafted weeping mulberry tree ? My yard birds love to perch on my tree as well. I too have a hard time differentiate between the various sparrows. These I think maybe a flock of chipping Sparrows?

Lily_love, Thanks for the comment on the brown headed nuthatch. The weeping mullberry is not grafted ~ All the birds love this tree especially the hummingbirds in the summer. I can tell different bird species apart usually, But, I do have a hard time when it comes to the sparrowy looking ones, I hoestly can't even tell you if those are chipping sparrows or not in your photo ( I think they are though) ~ I like the platform feeder you use.

BCH521, Thanks for sharring your photo of the partial albino northern cardinal, It's interesting!

Nanny, I would be lost without a nestbox here, I get a lot of activity with them and feel I would miss so much if I didn't have any. Wish we had cranes, We do get herons flying over once in a while though.

This is a cardnal in yesterdays snow sqwual ...

Hi everyone,
I can't believe how long it's been since I visited this thread (or anything else in DG, for that matter) other than a very quick visit!
It's so easy to get caught up in "this and that" and the next thing you know the months have gone by. I have an awful lot of catching up to do.

Wow, you guys have posted tons of GORGEOUS pictures. It's kind of amazing when you've been gone for a while to go back and really see the variety of birds everybody has taken pics of.

I haven't taken too many bird pics this Winter so far. Don't really know why since we have birds everywhere (I've taken lots of deer pics, though...posted a few in a thread I started a couple days ago in the Wildlife forum).

This pic isn't very good, but I thought it was fun because it showed a Male Cardinal, Male House Finch, Female Downy WP and the "rear end" of a Deer all in one picture.

JulieQ, cute photos of your birds too. Sorry you missed the sandhill cranes.

Nanny, lol the mocker. Glad you are seeing killdeer.

We had four bald eagles flying around our home for several days now. The two juveniles love to wrestle in the air.
We've lived here 11 years and yesterday was only the second time that an eagle has landed just below our house. I got a nice closeup out of it.

Thanks duc, the feeding tray was bought from one of the big box stores. It's designed so that the seeds are situated below the screen, thus birds can readily get to them, but chipmonks and squirrels can't reach the seeds as easily. I don't get to see the nuttall's woodpeckers down east, so it's a treat to see yours.

@JulieQ, yes birds are singing as if to say "Spring is here, spring is here". lol

Oh uh! My songbirds are having a tough time with this King of the garden today! This mockingbird apparently has discovered various feeders in the backyard and was chasing every single bird away from various feeders today! Here at the mealworm feeder, although it can't gain access to the mealies, but no one dares to get close while the mocker is standing guard. King for the day that's for sure!

Lily, that feeder sounds good, thanks. I feel sorry for your songbirds with that mocker around. Our mocker is still guarding the dried berries on one tree so my little birds are still safe. Cute photos.

Here's a couple purple finches.

We've had a couple of days of snow.
Trying to scatter food around for all the ground feeding birds & critters, but it's just impossible to fill everyone's belly...as it is, we buy 50lb bags of everything and stack them up in the garage. The feeders don't get used quite as much at this time of year. Even many of the feeder birds seem to spend more time on the ground...except for the Woodpeckers...they're constantly eating suet.

Amazing shots, everyone!!

Duc, I love all your pics...I don't know where to start, but the Dove with it's chest puffed out is pretty cool, the Eagles are fantastic and seeing a Hummer in Winter is really special!!

Wow, IRIS...so many wonderful pics! I Love that white suet feeder & your Bluebirds are beautiful, but I love every one of your bird shots!

GrannyGrunt...adorable suet shots!

JulieQ...Your birds are so pretty!

Nanny, those are the times when I wish I had a camera handy, but cool you got to see them.

Kim, cute shot of the Sparrows & fortunately the "Bully Birds" seem to come & go.

Beautiful Waxwing, Resin!

IrisMA, I wonder if by now you have our snowstorm.

None of these pics came out great. It was almost Dusk & I was shooting between the slats of the vertical blinds on our patio door so I wouldn't scare the birds. Some of the shots have shadows from the blinds that were too close to completely crop away.

1) Female Cardinal and a couple of friends
2) American Tree Sparrow
3 & 4) Dark-eyed Juncos
5) American Tree Sparrow

Lily_love, Nice pic of the sparrows, Interesting feeder, Gave me an idea to make one like that with a metal cage cover, I can't put food on the ground for the birds ( Though the woodpeckers seem to help out with dispersting the seeds sometimes) because there are too many squirrels here, So a feeder something like yours would help with that. The mocker here stands constant guard over a certain patch of berry shrubs, I was a bit surprised to see him actually try to scare off my dog the other day. The main feeders are about 20-25ft from where the mocker guards but the birds are not afraid to feed at that distance.

Ducbucin, Loved the photos, Especially the pic of the nuttall's woodpecker! We don't have those so it's a treat to see your photo

Resin, Nice pic of the waxwing! Love to see these particular birds! I know of a few places that they go and eat in abundance in the Spring, I'm hoping to get some good pic's of them this year!

nutsaboutnature, Thankyou for the nice compliment! ~ And I enjoyed your photos, You did pretty good for shooting at almost dusk and through vertical blinds!! Wish I could put food on the ground here, but, Can't do it with all the squirrels here, I think I'm going to make a feeder something like Lily-loves and then maybe I can put something at a lower level for them ( The Red bellied woodpecker usually makes sure that some seeds get scattered for the ground birds though as he chisels out the normal seeds to get to the nuts)

IRIS, we have tons of Squirrels, too, so I sometimes try to "time" the food (yes, I really said that!). Both the Squirrels and the birds come in "waves"... then the Deer eat any food that's left out overnight except suet and food in screen-type feeders or with small holes, like nyger seed for the Goldfinches. But we feed everybody so the birds, squirrels, deer, opossums and whoever else shows up, get at least some food. We try to not think about how much we're actually spending since it's way too much. Another good time to feed the birds is just before Dusk. By then most of the Sqirrels have "tucked" themselves in for the night.

I bought one of those dog crates a while back at a flea market for about $10.00 (I think they retail for about $40.00). I think the spaces between the bars are large enough for the small ground feeding birds, but I haven't tried it yet. It won't fit the larger birds like Cardinals & Doves, but those birds will also come to the hanging feeders.

Like you, I've thought about different ways to feed the ground-feeding birds. My husband is the one who builds any feeder ideas we have. He built a couple of Peanut feeders for the Squirrels last Autumn that hang on two large trees The Squirrels love them, but we only fill them as an occasional treat. As soon as one Squirrel discovers that they're full, every Squirrel in the neighborhood shows up and they're empty in about two hours!

We have squirrels eating spilled feed from our tube feeder & use suet with red pepper as well as seeds to keep the squirrels off. I don't mind them on the ground, but hate them on a feeder. We do have a round baffle over the feeder. they used to jump straight onto the feeder from the tree, but D H sawed off a couple tree projections & they are not able to jump from higher up.

Titmice & cardinals are beginning to call & don't pay as much attention to the feeder the last couple days.

I'm glad you've mentioned of your creative idea of using the dog crate as a modified birds feeder. If the crate is made of weather resistance material, I think it would work well?
Agreed irisMA, those commercial made so called "baffles" only baffling those inventive squirrels just for a little while, eventually they'll figure their way around 'em. So placement of the feeders does help. Titmice and Cardinals down South are getting busy preparing themselves for nesting season, I think. I can't wait.

JulieQ, whoa! Is that snow that I'm seeing on your decking? We've but a few flurries here, that looks so pretty on your picture! And what a big flock of Goldfinches you have! I only saw a few here and there in the last couple weeks.

JulieQ, wonderful shot of all those birds! It looks like your Goldfinches are starting to change into their Spring feathers. Ours are still very pale, but we're pretty far north and are covered in snow.

Kim, cute pic of the Mocker! I don't know much about the commercial Squirrel baffles having never used them, but the baffles my husband made about 8 years ago have kept the Squirrels completely off our feeders. They're large and cone-shaped and since he's kept the template he can make new ones when they start looking crummy, but they last a really long time.

nutsaboutnature, The squirrels and birds come in waves here too, I figure the groundfeeders get enough food with the seeds that get dropped, I surely do not encourage squirrels or other animals to be here, Love all nature, But, I live in a tight area of many homes now and people around here wouldn't appreciate my encouraging any other wildlife besides birds. I still get groundfeeding birds because of the dropped seeds, I was thinking of making a groundfeeder for them, but, Then again, I think it would add to the squirrel problem so I'm going to pass on it. Your lucky you live in an area that enables you the joy of so many.

irisMA, We have long white tubing on our feeder pole, The squirrels have a real hard time getting to the feeders with it, They make it once in a blue moon, But, Not often at all. We also put this tubing on our bluebird houses, It really helps so that the snakes and chippies can't climb the pole and get to the babies.

JulieQ, I really like the picture with the snow and so many finches!

Lily_love, nice pic of the mockingbird


adelbertcat, Enjoyed the pic's of the scrubjay, I think they are such pretty birds!

JulieQ, Enjoyed the pics, If the WW's are in your area they should be to mine sometime soon, I really look forward to seeing them again!!

At the feeders ... Bluebird - Male Cardnal, Female Cardnal and Titmouse, Starling, RB Woodpecker flying off with his nut.

Bluebirds enjoying there breakfast untill a robin dicovered the worms and started emensely guarding the bowl which brought on a major chase between the Bluebirds and Robin, While she would chase one or two, Others would come in a steal a worm or two, She made quite a ruckus about it which in turn attracted others to the mealie bowl, One being a finch.

Adel, I love your Western Jays. Eastern Jays are abundant here, but for some reason they don't usually hang around my garden as I wished they would. Love to see their antics. JulieQ, I'm delighted to learn the Cedar Waxwings are once again on the move, this time perhaps they're migrating back North? I need to keep my eyes peeled for them during their journey. IRIS love all those series of your back yard's birds. But I especially enjoyed the 'Doves and WP, and Sparrows having a conversation' lol. Them Doves are one of the most docile birds in the garden I've seen. I saw a mockingbird chasing a dove the other day. I couldn't believe it. In this case sizes doesn't matter when a mocker shows aggression toward Doves. Hah!

1. These pair of Northern friends the Canadian Geese are surely settling down south for the up coming breeding season I'm pretty sure of it. Soon I will see their babies in tow after momma and papa.
2. I'm watching the Cardinals and have noticed they begun to chase one another in the garden.
3. Purple Finch.
4. Redwinged Blackbirds are enroute on their Northern migratory journey, a few of them stopped by our backyard feeders to 'fuel up' during their trip.

1. Mockingbird, king of the the garden at the time being.
2. Not sure if this is a Hairy or Downy wp.
3 & 4. I spotted the Redheaded wp yesterday, it was a pleasant sighting.

Nice shots Nanny. It's difficult to get a good photo of a Brown Creeper since they blend in with their surroundings.

The waterfowl are heading back North as warmer weather starts moving into the mid-Atlantic states. The first two photos are of a Lesser Scaup. The third is of Tundra Swans followed by the Canada Geese. The last photo is of a huge flock of Snow Geese most likely on their way to Bylot Island in Northern Quebec which is a popular breeding grounds. Hunting seasons have been extended for the Snow Geese because the population has increased beyond sustainable numbers.

The first photo was taken on 1/29/13 at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. The second photo shows a hunter preparing his decoys. I took this photo at Middle Creek Wildlife Management area in PA, on 3/5/13. Electronic calls are also allowed to attract the Snow Geese. Some of these decoys are motorized to simulate a flying (landing) goose.

The third photo is that of a Bufflehead. The fourth is of a few Green-winged Teals. Both taken at Bombay Hook NWR, in DE. Last is a photo of a White Pelican taken at Blackwater NWR on the eastern shore of Maryland. Blackwater is about as far north as the White Pelicans migrate. It seems like a number of birds are gradually expanding their territory.

Adelbertcat - I just love all your Jay pics! They sure aren't timid. I grew up in Southern CA and they'd come right over and try to steal a sandwich out of our hands if we were outside eating!

JulieQ- Love the migrating Waxwing pics!

Great pics, IRIS! You have so many pretty ones, it's hard to choose a favorite. Love the sequence with all the birds around the "breakfast" bowl!

Lovely shots, Kim! I've also noticed early mating behavior in some of the birds. The Red-winged Blackbirds come and go around here all Winter, but now there are tons of them singing in the trees.

Nice pics, nanny! I always enjoy your Pileated shots. I've never seen one in person. We have Red-bellied, Downy and Hairy WP's year 'round and occasionally see a Red-headed in the Spring or Summer.

Amazing shots, Linth...Incredible detail & color! I especially like the ones in flight!
