I tried to zoom in on him, so hang on....perching on a branch right in front of my window.

He's colorful indeed. If I were to feed him, what can I get for him? Anykind of birdseeds? I've recently purchase a feeder, I'd like to hang them right out of my window to attract more birds.....

Live Meal Worms are their favorite food.

There are also suets that you can make for them.

In the Sticky at the top of the page (Helpful Guides and Tips) theres info on both these things in the second post (Sialis hyperlink) and the third post.

A duck? or a decoy? No, it could not be a decoy; it flew away.

Bird here on the left I assume is just a female Blackbird. I don't really see that many females.

Seemed larger than a female Cowbird to me....I have seen some females of this species...thought maybe I had something new. Many thanks, Resin.

I was worried it was a bit small! Shows how tricky size determination can be, even when there's something to compare with directly. The bill shape is spot on for cowbird though, too short and broad-based for any of the icterid blackbirds.

I have one visitor among many other little charming ones come to visit my new feeder. Please I.D.
