We don't see any nests around our house.
But, I do put out feed....and have two suet feeder, and one seed platform.
One suet feeder is a 18 inch branch with quarter size circles drilled about half inch in.
We get downy woodpeckers and now a couple of flickers.
Too many sparrows.
Red winged black birds, juncos on their way through and to nest/fledge.
Grackles. Robins. Chickadees. House finches. Mourning doves. Cardinals and jays.
A few others.
And the feeder brings a Coopers hawk around.....they seem to favor the doves.
In the summer, golden finches feast on coreopsis and rudbeckia seed heads.
From now until the robins fledge, I supply dried mealworms for extra protein. When the time comes, daddy robin will bring the babies to learn how to
fly and eat. It is so cute to see the not-so-small babies beg for food!!!!
