Are your feeders full?

Help out our feathered friends: make sure your feeders are full before the coming snow storms!

At this time of year, some of the birds to watch out for are American Goldfinch, Tree Sparrow and Mourning Dove among the many, many others.

Keep your feeders full and eyes peeled and you'll be surprised at how many species come to visit.

American Goldfinch at my feeder in Carp, Ontario

Amercian Tree Sparrow winter here in the south and
migrate back up to the treeline in the spring.
Note the rusty crown and black centre spot on the breast.

Mourning Doves have increased as a winter resident
in Eastern Ontario over the past 30 years.

Good birding,
