I just looked at the Cornell Feeder Cam for maybe 10 minutes and I saw 5-6 different species. Mourning doves, European starlings, Crow, Downy woodpecker and Red bellied woodpecker. It was very cool! I'm amazed that they would all tolerate each other in such close proximity.
Activity 2: Since spending all the time at home staring out at the tree near my kitchen window, I've seen so many new birds. There was a male American Robin hanging out on my deck, strutting his stuff for awhile and stealing dead plant fibers from my garden. There are a lot of regular Cardinals that come to visit. Not too long ago I saw medium sized songbird with a very pretty chirp and a yellow-orange chest, that I guessed was a Baltimore Oriole and the a similar-sized grey-brown bird with spots on his white chest, gobbling up the mayflies. That was a Swainson's Thrush. Can't wait to learn more about all the birbs!
