The Birds Have Found the Feeders



The birds are now comfortable with the birdfeeders, and there's a steady stream of birds in the yard all day.  I regularly see mourning doves, robins, blue jays, starlings, sparrows, juncos, finches, chickadees, and goldfinches.  Their songs have been echoing around Freeville for a few weeks now, and its nice to see them making themselves at home in my yard.  Maybe a couple of pairs will choose to take up residence and build a nest in one of my trees.  As you can see, the feeders now require occasional re-filling:



Here's a short, shaky video that I shot of a blue jay going to town in the yard, before something startles it:
