Rufous in a Grapefruit Tree (isn't from the 12 Days of Christmas), yet the grapefruit tree is a perfect perch for a hummer. It comes complete with bugs and spider appetizers and webs for nest building!
After a wind storm, this falcon spent the morning in our backyard. She returns often now, hunting birds such as pidgeons and doves that frequent the seed feeders.
Finches are fun to feed. Hang a thistle sock in a tree (this one's in our birch tree) and wild finches will take over! Garnets also feed from the sock and mourning doves will clean up the fallen seeds. TIP: Place one sock inside another to keep the thistle seed from falling to the ground so easily.
