January 25, 2012 More backyard birding

After yesterdays excitement my feeders were back in action with many of usual visitors. The American Goldfinch were busy with the niger feeders while Mourning Doves fed below picking up any seeds that fell. A European Starling almost back in spring plumage devoured the suet as both Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers waited. Unfortunately no Saw-whet today, likely a "one day wonder".

A European Starling sits on top of the suet feeder. Note the lack of spots now and bill colour  turning yellow. 

Once a rare winter visitor the Mourning Dove is now a regular feeder  bird during the winter months.
