social network for gardeners
how about a group about the different birds that come into our gardens?
Latest Activity: yesterday
We had woodpeckers in NC that loved our gutters. We have their cousins here doing the same thing. I have heard that they are sharpening their beaks on the gutters.
Cute picture of your window peeker Beth...I have told a story about when we first moved into our other house in the country. I heard a knocking so I went to the door, no one there. I got back up the steps and starting a project and there it was again. Went down the steps and no one at the door...we had a cedar house and it was a woodpecker pecking at bugs...silly thing just wanted to play tricks on me.
The mourning dove likes my very small bird bath...
Now this female cardinal has more red color...
The male was feeding her earlier while they were on the tray...he left and she stayed....so I think it is a female.
I got this from What Bird.com:
actually I had just put seeds out on the window sill and filled the feeders. he was trying to stick them around and between places inthe brick...they are quite spoiled.
I agree Judith...the coloring didn't quie look like a mature female.
Beth, is that bird trying to tell you he want more food??
Usually, the baby cardinals do not have orange beaks. Their beaks remain sort of dark brown until they are mature--end of summer here. I think that one is a mature female.
Love those red bellied woodpecker pictures, Beth.
Hahaha! HELLO!? Anyone in there???
I heard him pecking at the window and turned to get a couple of shots.
