This past week or two has been a busy time for the Brown Headed Nuthatches. They're working the peanut feeder very hard and as a result I am disinclined to shut it down yet. (I do this in the hot months). The BHNs always seem to be active at the feeders in waves: busy, then hard to find, then busy again. Perhaps they are feeding frantically in a nesting effort. Or not. I have only seen one bird but they do look identical in pairs! It's always very entertaining to watch them. I wonder how long I'll get in this wave?
This Wingscapes BirdCam enthusiast and keeper of a well-stocked "bird cafe" has been watching birds in Cary for over 18 years. I adopted the BirdCam in December 2007 and have been working with the product daily, recording over 35 species locally and gaining significant experience with the use of this amazing device. I'm not a "power birder." While I enjoy birdwatching in the field, I appreciate the simple delights of the birds found in my own backyard or in places just down the street. These are truly interesting places and I never tire of the little stories told every day in those places. The birds are central to this experience, but expect me to talk about the things that also are part of the birdwatching experience here at Cary BirdCam, from buying bird seed to crunching numbers in the logbook. Thanks for being a reader!
