I said that "This is a blog dedicated to my discoveries (good and not) in developing a Bird Sanctuary...", and so far there have been only good discoveries. But, today, I have a 'not good' discovery to journal.
On two separate days this week, I have found a little pinesiskin dead on the ground - one right under the feeders and the other about two feet away.
I've been perplexed and have studied the situation - trying to figure out what is happening.
I can only think they had flown into our dining room window. The feeders, situated right in front of the kitchen window, are 5 feet from it. This is within the 'safe' range recommended by the lady at WildBirds Unlimited. But, the dining room window is set back another 4 feet or so...
I will be taking measures to correct hazard. Meanwhile, I'm sure you know how I feel.
On a happier note, tho', the birds have just about devoured all of that seed wreath that has received so much attention! I am amazed!
