Good Morning All,
I have been slowly introducing my feeders to the back yard and finally put out
y suet feeders last weekend. We have had several bear sightings in the area
nd until last weekend I was bring in all of the feeders at sundown and puyting
hem back out in the morning. Today is also the first day of feeder watch and
f course I ending up with waves of goldfinches and tufted titmouse (titmices?).
he count for the latter is usually 3-5 for an half hour but today's count was
8. No Junco's! They are not too common at my feeders at the best of time (2-3
er half hour), but I seldom get skunked. Also no nuthatches. However the
irst of the winter at the feeder was a red bellied woodpecker.
