It is indeed a pleasant thing to see birds eating the natural stuff. It's mighty marvelous to see American Goldfinches prying seeds out of native wildflowers. And my beloved caught this picture of one working at a dried up Purple Headed Coneflower. This is why I am installing natives in the gardens. The flowers are wonderful to enjoy, and the birds get a proper energy boost from their seeds. I am hoping to see more of this scene in years to come!
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!
