It has been an absolutely miserable day weather wise. Dark gray skies and drizzle have ruled the day. Bird activity coming to the suet feeder has been very high. I think the word on fresh homemade suet has been spread among the birds.
The Eastern Bluebirds have dominated the feeder off and on all day. When they come, they come in a group. All six could not quite figure out to all get on at the same time so after some ate, they would fly to the top of the shepherds hook and wait. Sometimes though, squabbles would break out on the feeder when one got to pushy.
Other visitors included: Red-bellied Woodpecker, House Finches, Pine Warblers, White-breasted Nuthatches, Tufted Titmice, Chickadees, Downy Woodpeckers, Cardinals.
The squirrel has spent the day trying to make it past the baffle. After many failed attempts, one finally made it up today. More adjustments will be necessary. It has been interesting to watch them try and figure out a method to get past it. I get so aggravated with these little devils in fur!
