I'm sure some people know about this one, but I thought I'd post it anyway. http://cams.allabout...eederWatch_Cam/ They get some pretty cool stuff coming to their feeders!

And now there's a Hairy Woodpecker. You can hear a lot of birds if you listen.

 

Rose-breasted Grosbeak!

earlier i saw an evening grosbeak on it then two pine grosbeaks male and female. I think the coolest bird i have had at my feeder was a Rose Breasted Grosbeak male in spring. it only came twice (that i saw) or a pine siskin. coolest bird ever in my yard. no doubt Brown Creeper. coolest bird ever seen from my yard osprey, merlin, belted kingfisher, baltimore orial

That snowman feeder is cute as can be.  This morning I walked into Family Farm & Home (where I buy my bird seed in bulk) and right there, just inside the front doors, is that snowman feeder.  It's much bigger than it looks on the camera and I want it!!!  Unfortunately, it's a bit pricey for my budget at this time.

 

Edited to add:  I must have lousy timing.  Anytime I've checked out this live camera I never see any birds at all.

 

Edited a second time to add:  No sooner had I typed this and all sorts of birds started showing up on the cam.  Including an Evening Grosbeak...beautiful!

 

All I had to do was whine a bit, I guess.   :D


I'd rather be birding.

I just got a screenshot of the three grosbeaks a few minutes ago. A male evening grosbeak flew in and the interaction with the rose-breasted grosbeak looked like they were feeding each other while the pine grosbeak looked on. They're probably just fighting over the same seed but it looked cute, not fierce. Anyways, they're requesting screen shots like this on the website but I am not a twitter'er and can't seem to figure out how to get them the image. If someone could possibly pass this image on to Tammie and Ben Hache it would be greatly appreciated. I really don't want to have to sign up for another social media program that I'll never use. Thanks in advance.
