Birds All Aflutter - UPDATE March 30, 2024

Birds-a-plenty
I have never seen so many birds here ever. The redpoll flock doubled again to more birds than I can count—guessing over 300. Too many to feed all in one feeding area, so all I could get in a picture was about 200 on this feeding spot with many waiting in trees and feeding in other areas. I don’t know if it’s the recent snow that made them come in such number. The flock of crows also grew too large to count easily but it is over 60.

 Oregon Junco

 Hoary Redpoll

Mixed in are birds we seldom or never see here. One is the Oregon Junco that I have no record of seeing. They are the same species as the Slate-colored Junco that are common here. They are just different populations of the widespread Dark-eyed Junco. The Oregon Junco generally lives in the far west mostly in Oregon and Washington and winters in the southwestern states, while the Slate-colored Junco lives coast-to-coast across the boreal forest of Canada and winters across the United States.

The other unusual bird here now is the Hoary Redpoll—named for its grayish white color. They come down in small numbers with the darker, browner Common Redpolls when the redpolls are here in large numbers like this year, but they come from farther north.

Sometimes birds do things that seem friendly if you stretch your imagination, like the Common Redpoll (female or juvenile) that is waving at me or the Common Redpoll male that just seems to have a friendly look in his eye. I can only dream.

Looking for food
The female Pileated Woodpecker paid a visit and landed where there is often suet, but we removed the suet and the screws that hold it so the Bald Eagle wouldn’t trip as it swoops by for a grab. So the woodpecker flew to a tree where there are many little holes where woodpeckers have looked for or stored food. The female is used to seeing people here, so she didn’t worry when she was looking into one of the larger holes and I pried by having the camera look into the hole, too, but there was no food stored in it, so the woodpecker headed elsewhere to look.

Thank you for all you do,

Cal that is wonderful news about sweets! Again you and Jim are a good team. Very good news from to the vet advising about the meds and dosage. Awwww to your boy being inside nice and comfy and near you and Jim and even has sound going like in the barn. It definitely sounds much easier for you not being in the barn. And wow! You got all of your other animals fed too.

You're welcome for the prayers of course.
After sweets good health has returned and after everything you've done in the past for all your beloved animals you should be able to be called a vet too with all the knowledge you've gained!  :)

Now that you've got everyone fed it's time for you to try to rest now too while you can.

Cal, Oh okay. I just read your last post. Geez that is a tough worm! Very good to the aggressive treatment. I'm very sure you miss your old vet! Stay strong. I'm sure you will and you'll be veeery happy after you've kicked that nasty worm to the curb!!

Hi ev1.  This is a very special day for many reasons. Happy Dingus Day.  Watch out for it is also April Fools Day.  Sweets is watching TV and improving.  Cal, did old vet Ed bring his pets into his house and give them a tv?  I don't think so. That is pure Cal, and her loving accomplice, Jim. You guys are a wonderful team. A lot like Noah. LOL
Debbie took Bash to do his thing at the library this morning.  He likes to hold onto the edge of a big sheet of cloth that they call the Parachute.  Each child holds up a small section of a sheet all at the same time.  It is a cooperative exercise.  I guess some Mom got after Bash about the way he was doing something and set Debbie off.  Debbie is a very good verbal antagonist.  I think she told this Mom she could stay in any of three places for free;..".in your lane, out of my business, and over there"!
Yay Sweets keep it up.  Get UNRULY  you can do it!
Yay Bears are playing on Bear.org Cam 4.  I think it is Lucky and a girl, but I am not sure which one. Bye for now. GBU all.
