  1. What birds migrate South in January

    i live in the four corners close to where the states of Colorado Utah New Mexico and Arizona my backyard is right at 7000 foot elevation foothills just below the mountains. my story is just the opposite with only a few light snow storms this winter and no snow left on the ground. it has been in the Teens at night but in the 40's to low 50's daytime. the warmest winter i have ever seen here. there are lots of birds that usually migrate in the fall still here such as blackbirds and robins and the water is not frozen over and a lots more ducks and geese and other waterbirds hanging around and lots of juncos and evening grosbeaks and stellar jays and chickadees and finches and towhees all eating together at my feeders. the christmas bird count was at Pastorius resevior near Durango Colorado and it had one of the highest number of species and also one of the highest total number of birds.
  2. Help Please

    most of them i see is just a foot or so of a limb hung from a limb or a feeder pole and filled with suet mix or peanut butter

    i get a pair that comes each late fall into winter. mine go to the suet blocks first thing.
  8. Suet blocks

    of the store bought suet blocks the royal wing from tractor supply works best for me and overall the prices are good. I make homemade suet in winter that outdues the store bought ones but it costs orerall a littles more for the ingregients
  9. Bird food

    tractor supply here is usually the cheapest on suet blocks but occasionally there are better sales elsewhere. i did the arithmatic on making my own suet but it is usually cost more but the birds love the homemade best
  10. Bird food

    it can be expensive to feed birds especially the jays and doves and magpies and blackbirds because they come in large bunches. i found over the years that the big birds like the grains and cracked corn and the scratch grains which is mixed grains for chickens. so i buy cracked corn and scratch grains at the local feed store cheaper a lot more than mixed bird seed. and they love it i paid 8 dollars for a 50 lb bag for them the other day. and they emptied the feeders the same day. use any kind of hopper feeder that they can perch on. My sister just uses a metal pan and hangs it from a branch with rope on each side
  11. Loose Parakeet

    what worked for me was a box held up on one side with a stick and a cord running to the porch and some goodies under the box and when he went under the box to eat i pulled the cord and the box fell down over him
  12. here the walmart store has two brands of Boss. The morning song is $17 plus tax for 50 lb and penington $18 plus tax for 40 lb
  13. What is the best photo site?

  14. Holes in bottom of thistle sock

    i have both magpies and scrub jays that will fly up to a sock or a suet cage and hold on for a few seconds and jab at the sock or suet and then fly down to the ground and eat the stuff that falls out. two or three magpies can almost empty in minutes by taking turns stacking the suet cage and the scrub jay will hold on to the sock and jab at it. so i have been putting the thistle in a feeder that only lets small seeds and thistle to flow out into the tray on the bottom
