Birds in July

Eastern Bluebird

Mrs. B is here for mealworms.

She and the Mister are still feeding the fledglings somewhere out in the woods, but I haven’t seen them yet.

July has been pretty quiet in the backyard bird world – though we are still getting sporadic visits from bluebirds, blue jays, cardinals, grackles, red-winged blackbirds, cowbirds, goldfinches, chipping sparrows, chickadees, nuthatches, three kinds of woodpeckers, doves and robins.

I haven’t seen catbirds or titmice in a few days. The squirrels, gray and red, have been annoying. There are a few brown rabbits around. Snakes and turtles and groundhogs and muskrats and raccoons slightly further afield.

There have been some aerial battles around the hummingbird feeding, happening too fast for the human eye to see.
