Cool time of year.   New birds showing up weekly.  Last week had a Rufous Sided Towhee at the feeder and saw my firt Scarlet Tanager as well, but not at the feeder.

 

This a.m. was this Rose-Breasted Grosbeak.

 

What are you seeing?

So did we, until my company came out to do a walk around the house inspection.  Luckily the kids were well past the point of it being a thing and it was just a suntanning/reading pad at that point.

I don't feed birds any more bcz the feeder is a great place to spread diseases such as Mycoplasma spp,conjunctivitis,avian influenza,bacterial and viral enteritis,all highly contagious.We had a serious outbreak of conjunctivitis 15 yrs ago that wiped out almost all resident finches in our area and the disease was spread through contaminated feeders.

If you have a bird bath,rinse it out daily....please?

Your good intentions could actually be a threat to our feathered friends health.

So’k as long as it has the protective side net.

Not necessarily.  And I do believe there are riders available, but it wasn't worth the hassle or expense at the time.

The company that said if I didn't remove it I'd be cancelled cared.  I did not.

 

On topic:  I see lots of boids, red ones, blue ones, gray ones, some sing pretty tunes and some live in an old vent in my house.
