ur regular customers:
3. American Goldfinches
Frequent drop ins – Purple finches, pine siskins, ruby-throated hummingbirds, downy and hairy woodpeckers,
Occasional visitors – redpolls and white-throated sparrows
and, of course, bluejays who are always around (but not so welcome as their manners are appalling)
This week, we had a brand-new patron
A red-breasted nuthatch.
At first glance, I thought it was a chickadee but then I noticed the striped head.
He likes to hang upside down while he eats but we’re used to a little odd behaviour at this diner.
