Smell Like Dirt

In Spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood

Seen at the feeder

It may not feel like it (in the 80’s today) but its definitely fall. We are seeing birds at the feeders that we usually only see in the winter such as the white throated sparrow and pine warbler. The bluebirds are regular visiters in the spring and early summer when they are raising broods, but they’re coming frequently these days. We had 4 at the same time which might be members of this summer’s broods. The red breasted nuthatch was especially exciting as we haven’t had one of these at the feeders for 6-7 years. The downy woodpeckers are regulars, but the video clearly shows the difference between the males and females. Enjoy!
