I’ve been filling my feeder with bird seed – the cardinals especially like the black sunflower seeds. But this cardinal was poking around in the other side of my yard, where I’ve been growing tomatoes and cucumbers.
I wonder what he is thinking: “Shall I try a cucumber?” – no, probably not that.
What’s fun about catbirds is the way they sing. Also, they hop around quickly. This little catbird is a juvenile – I’ve been seeing other birds that are smaller than usual, meaning they are basically teenage birds.
Isn’t this little catbird cute? I like the way he looks down, clutching the edge of the garage roof with his little claws.
Ah, now he is looking right at me.
Robins usually don’t eat the bird seed in my feeder. I’ve been told they like fruit. I do have raspberries in my garden, but I’ve never actually seen a robin poke at my raspberries.
Last week I saw a yellow goldfinch with black head. I’ve also seen a blue jay. My friend saw a turkey vulture on her lawn. Seen any unusual birds lately?
