I run 5 feeders in my garden plus two water sources and a some bird friendly plantings (my long suffering wife actually fills the feeders). The feeders are well used but with only a small number of species visiting regularly. We used to great far more species but it has really declined over the last 10 or 12 years. This week the Evening Grosbeaks reappeared after a very long absence. They aren't in the numbers that we used to get but I've seen the small flock three times so far this week. The next thing to happen was that aflock of Bohemian axwings hit a flowering cherry that is close to the feeders. I doubt if they will be back because they cleaned off most of the small tree;s berries. Today's excitemeent was the arrival of a Red-breasted Nuthatch. Qe do get visit from a nuthatch most years but they don't stay around so I'm hoping that will change this year. At one time they used to come to the feeders on a daily basis. Regardless I've had an exciting week and I'm very grateful for it. I'm housebound so all of my birding is through my window.
