New Bird Feeder and Visitors

Since I havent been using this bird bath I figured I would change it up and make it a feeder...Nice and easy to refill as well.

Shortly after the refil I found some visitors! :thumbs up

Other than the obvious red one (cardinal) I dont know what the others are....except the big black ones are nasty to other birds.

Winston,nice pics and the big black one is a Grackler,not nasty at all:laughing:at my house they all get along.
People look at black birds,the same as they look at black cats and dogs,it's not their fault that they are not particularly pretty:yell:

Grackles are pretty--they have irridescent heads. :lovestruck: But they also can have nasty characters--plus they're feeder hogs if they come in large numbers. :frustrated: Still, I never begrudge a grackle a meal--especially since they come so infrequently here, and usually only one at a time. :D

The little brown birds are house sparrows. The one with the black chin is the male. The plainer one is the female.

It looks like your new feeder is a hit!! :thumbs up
