My cheap squirrel guard, keeps the deer away. I see them trying, with no success.

Spotted two new species this week bringing our total species to 42!

#41) House Wren (Northern) - Confirmed the species from its song which is why we spotted it in the first place. It was here with 3 fledglings begging for food while jumping from tree to tree.



#42) Yellow-billed Cuckoo - Notice the caterpillar nest in the first image which I'm assuming is what attracted it here.

Check out the white circles on the bottom of his tail! Really cool!

Also saw the Pine Warbler again. It too has a really nice song and was how we spotted it!

We have seen many cute fledgling birds around these past few of weeks.

These Blue Jays are definitely one of the nominees for the cutest award! They remind me of baby penguins!

A delightful read.  I was LOL, envisioning this man trying to outwit his resourceful, unwanted guest.

Iíve had my bird feeder up since Sunday after Shavuos. Bought all the recommended foods - seeds, spicy and peanut suet, thistle, peanuts. So far Iíve only seen a house sparrow. They love the seeds, liked the peanut suet better then the spicy but they are eating it, and my peanuts and thistle are untouched. Besides moving, any suggestions
