  1. That blue grosbeak is a handsome bird. I’m not sure I have ever seen one around here.
  2. Ruby-throated Hummingbird Tracker

    Hummingbird activity has picked up. I’ve gone from one female to 2 females and a male. I’m hoping to get several more.
  3. How do I get my Goldfinchesback

    Keep putting out fresh nyjer and Boss. They will come back. What state do you live in?

    All babies are gone! https://imgur.com/gallery/tLNLB

    Thanks! I'll look into it.

    I used Flickr but I had to shut down my account since some photos were not as private as the company claims. No biggie. I'm glad your blues got started this year.

    Today is day 16 after hatch so I will be watching the bluebird box to see if I can catch a glimpse of any of them leaving the box. I'm guessing that since I had such a early brood that it could be up to 20 or more days before they fledge since the lower number of insects had to be an issue this early in the season. I never had a good chance to see if I had 5 eggs hatch. I know that I saw 4 babies about 6 days ago and then stopped disturbing the box so I would not make any of them anxious looking at them. Does anyone know how to get more space on your whatbird account so that you can post additional photos? I used up my allotment of space with my last photo.
  8. Watch out for them. They usually show up this week or next week around here. Chaseman can almost predict the grosbeak arrival to the day! Ha ha! He did last year!
  9. Ruby-throated Hummingbird Tracker

    I saw my first one yesterday morning. Female. I think she was just passing through going North because I didn't see her again after lunch.
  10. Ruby-throated Hummingbird Tracker

    I still have not seen one this year even though many have flown over and around my house!

    I always rake the nest out after each brood. It seems to stimulate them to work fast to get another brood going. Sometimes when I leave the nest in the box they seem to take a lot longer to get going again. Hopefully yours will get a move on!
  12. Bluebird House Question

    Please do not mount on a tree... When I did that 3 years ago, none of my bluebird chicks survived. Since mounting on a pole with a baffle I have had much more success!

    I got back in town following a short bring break trip with the kids and the nest is full of chicks. I wasn't able to count them to make sure there are 5 but I will get a chance soon. I'm guessing they hatched on Monday-Tuesday.
  14. Fishing Friend

    Trying to fish the surf today at Ormond Beach, FL and two of these guys will not leave me alone. I gave them some sand fleas and they wanted to go home with me. Not sure what they are? A type of egret or herron?
  15. Ruby-throated Hummingbird Tracker

    The juncos, pine siskins and gold finches left my yard to go north last week. The next visitors that I get excited about are the rose-breasted grosbeaks and the indigo buntings. They usually arrive in late April.
