Patti, I love cardinals, I havent seen any since I lived in Indiana.

Do you have bluebirds too?

Hugs, Janet

I had more over at the house I moved from (last May 3.6 miles from that door to this door) but yes see a few but not as many as Cardinals. I love all the birds but the black birds try to dominate the feeders which I don't like.

Janet, I have 8 pair of red cardinals that come to my feeders. A couple years ago I only had two pair but they must have spread the word. I would love to see a bluebird. I think I am too far north for that, though. We have a field across the street from our house and we see hawks flying over it all the time but luckily I have never seen them actually "kill" anything.

We see several pairs of cardinals here, but most early in the morning or at dusk. Lately, I've only seen the mourning doves and goldfinches, but I haven't been watching out that window as much as I once did.

I don't know if you are interested, but, I just received this notice about birds. Here is the web site. Primarily is for educational groups, clubs and libraries can do it also. Or you can do it just for fun.
www.urbanbirds. org/celebration

A homeschool group here is going to do this.

Good Morning Everyone!

Wow..how great it is that everyone has alot of great birds at their feeders....especially cardinals..

bacraig-thanks for the great link to urban birding..very interesting!

Patti-we do not have blackbirds here yet..too early for them but yes they can be a pest. Another pesty bird is the Bluejay. I love the blue color of them, but they do tend to "hog" the feeders...and drop alot of seed..all I feed is black oiled sunflower seeds, so it is not like they have to hunt for their favorites. lol

Janet

How wonderful to find other people who love birds!! I have 6 feeders,mostly hanging from shepherds hooks,a birdbath and some smaller feeders on the ground for my mourning dove friends My favorites are cardinals...seems like when Im having a bad day it's almost like God sends a cardinal to make me smile......always so cheery to see birds at the feeders. My cats love to watch the birds too,lol...and also the birds that I have in my house as well.

Anyone has any good tips or ideas for birding,Id love to hear them!!

Hugs,
Elaine

I need to put out some millet and see what happens - cracked corn too. Right now I just have sunflower seeds, safflower seeds and suet out.

Is millet the little yellow round grain? That last bag of birdseed I got was full of it. It's ALL OVER THE PLACE under the feeder. Some of the mourning doves and sparrows do eventually eat it up...but what a mess! Yesterday I was able to find my regular kind of birdseed. A couple more fill-ups and the mostly-millet one will be gone.
