Color at the Bird Feeder 3.31.15

The Painted Buntings are almost in full color. Isn’t he a beauty?


The bird on the left is an Indigo Bunting….he is just starting to molt.


This Woodpecker likes a turn at the feeder….everybody leaves when it shows up.


I call this one “little Mommy”. I can see where she has been nursing little ones.


I run off the other squirrels but “little Mommy” gets to grab a bit now and then. Only problem…she tosses most of the seed on the ground to get the sunflower seeds.



The one on the left is just starting to molt…the one in the middle is a little farther along.



The Indigo Bunting in the back is just about colored out. Usually when you see them this bright it’s time for them to leave.


The green bird is either a juvenile Painted Bunting or a female.



Watch the activity…..Cardinals, Painted Buntings, Indigo Buntings, Titmice and Woodpeckers.

Sometimes you can even see some Honey Bees in the back ground. The hives are just behind the feeder.

  1. Wow! How can you get any work done at all with so much excellent viewing in your yard. I'd be tempted to watch from a cozy chair from dawn to dusk! Those buntings are incredibly colourful. I haven't seen any this far north. And of course I loved watching your honey bees torpedoing to and from their hives on important bee business. Also loved listing to the bird chatter in the video. Thank you for sharing.
    Cheers, Florence
