Imagine it could possibly be a territory thing too? Try spacing them out and see if it helps
Yeah, I might just do this. I put out a lot of peanuts for them and the jays, and that keeps them on the ground for the most part, but once those are gone they immediately set to the feeders.
Good article on why wrens do what they do.
I’ve never noticed the wrens by the bluebirds, but I’ll keep an eye out from now on. The bluebird nest is way out in my back yard and the wren nest is near my screened in porch. Def could be a territory thing
I have and it usually works. Don’t think it’s this exact bag but I use Cole’s
edit. I think this is the one
I'm driving a few hours north tomorrow with a buddy. Rumor has it that there's a spot where you can see California Condors.
Lol @ the advertising on it though. Birds will go crazy for the taste. Wonder if the same thing could be accomplished with a big bottle of cayenne and a cheap bag of sunflowers
oh I’m sure there’s a home solution to it
Just had some pretty cool interaction with some barred owls in my neighborhood using my caller.
They were hooting up a storm. Pretty cool how they coexist with our Redtailed Hawks.
Rolled up to Mt. Pinos with some friends, surprised to still see some snow up there. A 3 mile hike at 8800 feet made me feel like I've never exercised in my life, but I did see 2 Green Tailed-Towhees, White-Headed Woodpecker, and some Violet Green Swallows.
Green-Tailed Towhees have a Orange mohawk. (not my photo)
I didn't see any condors at Bitter Creek. I saw a Western Kingbird, Savannah Sparrow, a Horned Lark, and a Red Tailed Hawk being chased by 2 Ravens.
I feel like shit. I ran over a baby starling with the mower today. Survival is hard enough for these little guys and now they gotta worry about me not paying attention to what I'm doing and brutally murdering them.
But on the other hand it's a starling so fuck em
So jealous. Owls are my favorite type of bird.
When I was an undergraduate I got to take a summer course out in Yellowstone and the great plains/ Sandhills of Nebraska. In Yellowstone the professor was good friends with a local photographer who worked with the planet earth crew when they filmed the great gray owls and pine martens. Turns out, the pine marten scene was in his front yard. He hiked us out to the great gray owl nest that they filmed and we got to see the fledglings sitting on the tree getting ready to jump out. Didn't do it while we were there but that was an amazing experience.
It was early may and in Nebraska alone we counted over 120 species of birds in the pothole wetlands and river cooridor up at niobrara.
Lazuli Bunting on the porch this morning. Random and awesome.
The full plumage male lazuli buntings are absolutely stunning. Got a look at one for like 5 minutes in Eastern Montana, never saw it again.
Good article on birding as an African-American. I've never been fucked with once AS A WHITE PERSON*, crazy to read the stuff some of these guys have had to put up with.
"Whenever I want to go exploring in a really remote area, I always want to bring white people with me because that is the easiest way to vouch for my presence."
Wait, your black?
I now have three black friends!!!
this is a good day
Forgive the wording of my post. I am white bread my friend.
Well that’s a huge let down....... you should have just played along
now I only have 2 black friends
I have 4 little houses like this and they are all rented
Loaded up my seed today with organic cayenne pepper and it’s been a huge success. Zero squirrels on the feeder (more than happy to feed them on the ground) and got my first brown-headed nuthatches to visit as a result.
Found an owl nest today. Pretty sure it's a Great-Horned, couldn't get great pictures.
