The yard has been very birdy lately. We have had chilly weather and they are eating a lot.
Yesterday I took some photos (through the window) of my visitors.
Varied Thrush:::He likes to grab big chunks of the suet dough and run for cover under a bush and eat it in privacy. I don't think he likes all the activity of the other birds around when he is eating.
Female House Finch
Scrub Jays love peanuts!
This Downy Woodpecker was a bit puzzled by the caged suet feeder. I see them go into it all the time, but he was leery of it.
Finally, he moved over a few feet to investigate the easy feeder.
Currently, one of my favorite birds, the Yellow-rumped Warbler has been visiting every day.
He eats the suet, but loves the suet dough when I scatter it on the ground.
If you want to see some pretty Ohio birds, check out Heather of the Hills and see who has been eating her suet dough.
