The Perfect Spot – Week 4

February 8, 2014 § 2 Comments

Under the eave has turned out to be the perfect spot for the suet feeder.  The squirrels gave up ages ago. Every day there’s some new winged visitor(s).

Common Bushtit convention! Just for scale, the feeder is only 5.5 inches square.

Red-shafted Flicker. Takes some maneuvering for the larger set to land just right.

The Steller’s Jay isn’t used to acrobatics. But this one was persistent. Pretty talented sculptor, too…

    And I thought we had a lot of birds at our feeders. No blue jays, but we get the bushtits, woodpeckers, juncos and chickadees. We have been going through a lot of suet since the cold weather hit. Hope you are staying warm.
    Love, Jan

      Odd, but in all the years I lived on Whidbey I never saw a Bluejay visit the feeder. This spot seems to attract the birds of my Seattle childhood. And today we’ve got snow! Another suet block is in the cage. Keep the fire going. Love, Pierr
