  1. Syncopated bird call

    possibly Song Sparrow. each song sparrow will sing its own rendition of the same tune https://www.xeno-canto.org/species/Melospiza-melodia
  2. How do you stop feeding?

    Thanks for your reply Charlie. The Cardinals hanging around for days was actually back in July. I have been putting out half as normal until I run out, and will see how it turns out
  3. Bird that Sounds like a Squeaky Swing

    I think blue jays and common grackles sound squeaky. maybe you can get a recordinv for us if all else fails
  4. Bird Singing Pretty Pretty Pretty!

    Another possibility is tufted titmouse
  5. I have been feeding wild birds and squirrels in my yard for almost a year. I think i mainly continue to feed not out of enjoyment but now out of pity or something similar. In march i would put out 4 solo cups of food, which equates to about 1 lb a day. This has attracted hundreds of birds and maybe a dozen squirrels. I did not feed for 2 days and I went out and theres at least 10-15 birds (sosp, wtsp, deju, noca) hiding in the bush near where I feed waiting for food. The last time I tried to quit, 10 days later there are 6 or so cardinals beeping in the yard seemingly not doing anything but perching and chirping incessantly. the research i do online mostly says you can stop feeding at any time, that birds only get 30% of their food from the feeder. Will they all eventually get the hint? Should I just stop cold turkey? One other concern I have is pesticide will be sprayed in April (not my choice), which I am worried could be disastrous. Anybody have experience stopping feeding that could lend me advice?

    White-Capped Song Sparrow hanging out in the yard the past few months
  8. Yellow Cardinal

    Maybe this is the key to the bright green bird mystery of two thousand seventeen
