Had enough yet? This phase seemed to be coming from the pesky black birds themselves. For most of a week I have seen grackles at every feeder. They are aggressively dominating and gorging themselves. What they didn't count on is that I have, in fact, had enough. And I have shut down those feeders for as long as it takes to discourage this "bird bikers." They descended on me and ruined the climate and I am perfectly happy to invite them to move along. But how long will it take? a week? two? more? I am prepared to wait. Let's see if these obnoxious birds can wait me out!
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!
