Things seem to be changing a bit at my Sherburne HQ bird feeder. Lots and lots of woodpeckers - hairy's are displaying and showing territorial aggression. Hairy, downy and red-bellied numbers are increasing - today I have 4 female red-bellied woodpeckers at one time, and up to 3 sets of downys and hairy's at a time. I know the peanut butter suet isn't THAT good!
Yesterday and today have lots of goldfinches and a few redpolls, and today a couple male purple finches are here. Two mourning doves and a brown creeper visited briefly this morning also. Haven't seen those 2 species for two months or more.
And, I've seen horned larks in Stearns, Benton and Sherburne Counties in the last few days. Bring it on - migration!!! We're anxiously awaiting the arrival of hooded mergansers in the river outside HQ!
