      When I was a little boy, and first picked up a rock, I threw it at a bird. My brother was the same, but he had a BB gun. So ever since I could remember we tried shooting every bird we could. Dad told us not to shoot Robin's, but well, they were easy targets. I've thought about getting a feeder, but I'm not sure I could handle it. I can see myself putting it in the perfect spot to plink them off.

      I have 3 or 4 pairs that winter at my place. I used to plant giant sunflowers that they just loved. I didnt plant any sunflowers this year but they love what ever is left in the sweet corn patch. They and the squirrels fight a lot over who get what. LB

      I have at least 4 Blue Jays around our yard. The grandson's like feeding them peanuts, but I think they almost prefer cat food more.

      Once in a while I see what I think might be a Brewer's blackbird at the feeder , Last winter a couple of times and saw it yesterday again.
      Does anyone else see them in the winter ? It doesn't eat , just sits there on a loaded sunflower head so that makes me wonder if it's a black bird , must see the other birds and just sit at the feeders for companionship.

      Are you noticing any new birds ?

      Martins, Orioles and hummingbirds all showed up at the same time this year along with some Rose-breasted Grosbeaks.

      I saw orioles and rose breasted grosbeak yesterday. Lots of white crowned, white throated, Harris, and Lincoln’s sparrows right now too.

      They are escapees from dog trainers. I think there are a couple of pockets of them in Bismarck.

      I think a horned owl killed my Coopers Hawk three days ago. I dont like the mess subversive make, so buy the shelled seeds. I don't know how many bags I fed this winter. The Redpolls about ate me out of house and home, and when the left the Juncos got into the feed. I think my winter favorites are the chickadees and the real tame little Red Breasted Nuthatch. I agree with KDM those darn Blue Jays tell everyone your in the woods.Name:  20220512_132427.jpg

      Seems like buffleheads passed through pretty late this year. Saw a pair as recently as last Thursday. Not songbirds, obviously, but seemed odd to me.

      What a swarm of Orioles this year, wife counted 14 of them at one time. I think that's the most we have ever had at one time . Seems like they gather up to replenish thier energy from the flight while they fight for territory and will soon spread out.

      I wonder if it isn’t because the bugs really haven’t come out yet and they don’t have many other food sources right now

      I donno , I've never saw this many up here. In years past they've gathered up and hunkered down here, almost always show up on a rainy day and more than once they sat out a snow storm here but never in numbers like this. They keep coming, I counted 17 this morning and I'm sure theres more than that. I've only seen a couple hummingbirds so far and usually they outnumber the Orioles by a long ways but I'm sure they are intimidated by the wind and the Orioles. Another difference is so far I've only noticed one orchard Oriole so they really brighten up a gloomy rainy day. This is better than any fireworks show I've seen.

      Still have an overwhelming bunch of orioles, it's common to count over 20 between all the feeders. we cut back on jelly and oranges so they drink sugar water. I found out how little I knew about Orioles when a real real dark brown one showed up. Turns out it's a male Orchard Oriole, The first one of those we've noticed. I only knew about Baltimore and thought the rest were orchards . I need to get some better pictures for better comparison but I think we are seeing most of these .
