Feederwatch!

November 1st, the Birds Canada Feederwatch starts . I am looking forward to it and I have already started to look at which birds are coming to our feeders. This is my response to the Whatsoever is Lovely challenge from Xingfu Mama. These little birds are so lovely to me.

I believe this is a white crowned sparrow.
This young white crowned sparrow is waiting for a turn on one of the feeders.
This sparrow has a big seed in his mouth.
The downy woodpecker is pounding on a seed to get it open.
He got the seed open and has swallowed it. The nail in front of him is there for us to attach oranges to it in the spring for the Baltimore Orioles.
The dark eyed junko.

    Sounds like a very interesting “citizen scientist” project – I look forward to seeing what you add to your list, Anne.

  6. They’re so sweet! We have similar woodpeckers around our house and they like to riddle the telephone poles with holes to store acorns XD.

      We have a lot of old trees on our road. Most are at least 100 years old. They have lots of holes that birds and squirrels use for storing nuts and seeds.
