Last weekend was our first try at Project Feederwatch. I've been meaning to post my counts all week, and now that we're doing our second weekend, we're on the verge of falling behind! Here's what we saw at our feeders last weekend. The numbers reflect the maximum number of birds seen of that species at any one time.
At the feeders:
Mourning Dove (4)
Blue Jay (2)
Not at the feeder, but hanging out:
Hairy Woodpecker (1)
I'm a little concerned about the robins - haven't they usually flown south by now? My other concern has to do with seeds- the hopper feeders is empty after only one day. At this rate, my huge bag o'seeds will only last another month or so. What I'm wondering is if I should keep filling it every day or wait until my feederwatch days. (The other tube feeder still has seed in it.) I did write to Cornell to ask them this question but they haven't answered yet.
I'm hoping to post my weekly counts in my sidebar throughout the project. I'd love to hear from any other feederwatchers - especially if you're nearby!
