Grosbeaks, Cardinals, and More!
It has been a great week of bird watching with lots of activity going on! The Rose-breasted Grosbeaks have been coming to the feeders regularly while feeding Juveniles that have recently been born. Goldfinches, Robins, and Cardinals have been all over the place as well! Orioles and Hummingbirds are a little down right now, but I expect them to be visiting feeders more frequently as they start to prepare for their migration over the next several weeks. Let’s take a look at some photos and videos from this week!
The Rose-breasted Grosbeaks have been putting on a show recently! What I love about the Grosbeaks is that they are a relatively calm bird that does not get startled or spooked easily when humans are around. You can really enjoy watching them up close as they sit calmly in a feeder enjoying their meal. Here is a photo of one sitting on our bird feeder hook!
Like I mentioned, the Juvenile Grosbeaks are starting to make their appearances. Here is a precious video of one being fed. It’s little moments like this that allow us to slow down a little and really appreciate the beauty of nature! The Grosbeaks will be preparing to fly back across the Gulf of Mexico over the next 4-6 weeks, so enjoy them while they’re here!
Looking at Cardinals never gets old. Their dazzling red color always captures my attention! They have been frequent visitors recently as well putting on a wonderful display. This photo is of one nibbling on some leftover seed under the feeder.
It’s been hot recently! The bird baths have been seeing plenty of action as Robins, Finches, Sparrows, Starlings, and plenty others have been getting a nice drink and having fun splashing around trying to stay cool. Here is a Goldfinch getting ready for a sip!
