I have fewer Juncos, just an occasional House Finch and Gold Finch. I had a Field Sparrow last week which I never have in winter. I had one mourning dove on two separate days. Usually have several. Three titmice and chickadees at the most. I've had up to 10 cardinals, 5 of each sex.
The Juncos have learned to stand on the squirrel baffle and eat the peanut butter I smear on the post. Just this week, I had a Song Sparrow doing the same thing. That's the first time I'd seen that. After watching the Juncos hover and grab a beakfull I started putting it where they could reach it. They can't cling to the post like the titmice, chickadees, nuthatches and downies.
I haven't had Purple Finches or Pine Siskins this year. Anita Huffman Grayson Co., VA On 01/24/2014 09:24 PM, eastin@xxxxxxxxxxx wrote:
I had been wondering about purple finches. Last year I had 20-30 at a time. This year I have none. And now that you mention Chickadees and Titmouse, there are fewer of them. Still have them but fewer. Also getting W-b Nut., Dark-eyed Juncos, abundant mourning doves and goldfinches, Cardinal, Bluejay, Carolina Wren, House sparrow, and 3 woodpeckers (Downy, Hairy, and Red-bellied) The Hairy is new at my feeder this season. Hope to get a sapsucker again. Todd Eastin Shady Valley
