I had to put a cage on the feeders to keep the Blackbirds out.
Here are a couple of the Greenies. They can be either females or adolescent males.
Here is a closer look at the back…they are really very pretty.
You can see they have the company of a male in this picture. He is just visible on the L of the feeder.
So far, I have seen 4 Greenies at one time and 4 brightly colored males. One of the green birds is just starting to get a bit of color on it’s breast. It’s the first one I have seen like that. I hope I am able to get a picture of it. So I know at least one of the green birds is a male.
My neighbor down the road has several Painted Buntings coming to her feeders. A few years ago I had never seen one. Now I have at least 8 buntings.
I’ve also seen one brown bunting. I believe it to be a female Indigo. I keep watching for a bright blue one to show up.
