My most recent guest blog post for Morris Arboretum is about birds that you can see there at this time of the year. It’s called “Eye Spy: 6 Birds to Spot at the Arboretum Now.” I had fun “researching” for this one. I am not an expert birder by any means, but I am an enthusiastic amateur. I watch the birds in my own yard all the time. This year I moved both my hummingbird feeder and finch sock close to the back porch so that I could get a better look at my visiting feathered friends. It’s been fun watching. Take a peak of what I saw over the last month or so...
Here are several female goldfinches and one lonely (or not so lonely!) male at my finch sock.
I had regular visits from both a male and female hummingbird. This is a male Ruby-throated Hummingbird at my feeder.
This small video shows the hummingbird and goldfinches having a picnic together.
