For the Birds: More Finches

by Cheryl Baxter

Good Monday!

The birds are busily flitting about in a feeding frenzy.  I was out on my own property again this week and was able to get quite close to a couple of American Goldfinches feeding on the thistles.

Also lately, there has been quite a bit of activity from the Pileated Woodpeckers.  I love their unmistakable call. You can get to a sound wave if you click HERE.

I was surprise to see a Chickadee who posed so nicely for me and I caught a quick glimpse of a Northern Flicker in our yard. They are quite skittish so I snapped quickly and then he flew off.

I will try to get out on a hike later this week in hopes of spotting some new and interesting migratory birds as they get ready to leave.

Here’s to a great week of Feathers, wings and beaks!
