I love the video showing/sharing more information about birds. I will give my love birds the best attention. concrete contractors rochester mn
Interesting - I've had feeders out since June and they've been quite busy the last few weeks, in a quite small back yard/garden. Plenty of goldfinch, greenfinch, blue, great & coal tits, dunnocks and the odd robin, plus a patrolling sparrowhawk at least a couple of times. Coal tits have been taking sunflower hearts to cache elsewhere. I think some of the blackbirds are off in the woods getting natural food though. I'm sure I had several visiting but maybe down to two at the moment.
Hello, I look at the nest cam through the the winter and find that blue tits tend to roost in the box on windy nights, not particularly on cold nights.
I have bird bath with a pump and running water in the middle of the lawn where they can easily see it but I have the feeders near a high hedge. There is a sparrow hawk about. The tits and finches like to sit in the hedge, fly two feet to the feeder from where they can quickly get back into the hedge. The dunnocks and wood pigeons loiter about under the feeders
Thank you very much for this video - informative and fun!
