About Today’s Photo:

Traffic at our feeders yesterday was pretty heavy. I swear we had about 30 bluejays here at one time in the afternoon and a good 10 mourning doves. Air traffic control was  mess. We’re going through 40 lbs of sunflower seeds a week. Does someone want some of our jays?

    Thanks John-You may keep your Jay’s as I have my own raucous “herd.” I also have at least one pair of doves, which is unusual for here in the hills of Starksboro. There are loads of chickadees, several pairs of nut hatches, a few pairs of titmice and both downy and hairy woodpeckers-with an occasional palliated one around. (Then we have red squirrel #1 and red squirrel # 2 that live on opposite sides of the house.) I have 2 sunflower seed feeders that close in front if a heavier bird gets on the bar. I’ve been going through suet like crazy and you should see the jays come out of no where when I toss out peanuts-in-the-shell. (Thanks for all your bird photos. I use some of them on my FB page, under ESWB .)

    • Hi Marcia,
      Sounds like you’ve got a similar full compliment of birds and squirrels to ours! Glad you like the bird shots!
