That is what is odd; there is quite a bit of hunting in our area, so I'm surprised that they are coming in so close. I'm wondering if they are having a harder time finding food right now because of our extended winter?

The wild birds here are in trouble. People are reporting dead or dying birds all over. |em17| I have been filling my feeders a couple times a day; they are just cleaning me out of seed and suet, the poor things. I had a huge flock of redwing blackbirds here over the weekend. The side yard and driveway were black with them. It was a pretty amazing sight; the pictures just aren't quite the same as seeing them in person:

Wow. You are really a sanctuary from the storm for those poor birds. I bet they are all blaming their tour guide for getting the seasons mixed up.
Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

At least we don't have the snow.

I did get a thrill today at my feeder. I had a pair of goldfinches! This is the first ones I've had at my feeder. And, not too long ago, I had a male, downy woodpecker!
