Snow showers brought a frenzy of feeding birds today just outside our kitchen window from 1:15 - 2:15 pm today.
over 120 American goldfinches - they were devouring both nyjer seeds and sunflower hearts over 23 cardinals - all were perched in one hawthorn tree - I think they were afraid to penetrate the frantic goldfinches to get to the feeders 5 juncoes 2 male Eastern towhees 1 fox sparrow 1 chickadee 5 white-throated sparrows 2 pileated woodpeckers 1 tufted titmouse 1 downy woodpecker 1 red-bellied woodpecker 3 mourning doves 6 house finches 3 house sparrows
We had a lot of birds feeding all day, but was especially busy early afternoon.
