Being home from the office allows me to catch more sightings of attractive birds availing themselves to our feeders. About this time every year, we get to see Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. Here is the male Grosbeak enjoying our sunflower seed this afternoon—
Last January we had our first sighting of a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. This amazing bird has returned for another late December and January visit. He seems to enjoy our upside-down suet feeder. The video has him pecking away at the suet while the outside temperature today is about 10 F.
Several years ago, we had a pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers creating a home in a backyard tree.
It’s that time of year again, and they’re creating a new home, about 150 feet from our back window.
