American Gold Finch wasn’t in a hurry on a windy day
American Gold Finch wasn’t in a hurry on a windy day. It starts out with mourning doves try to just land on the platform on a windy day. Once the American Gold Finch found the nyjer seed he just wasn’t in a hurry to go anywhere. Black-capped Chickadee, house finches and nuthatch came and left while the American Goldfinch enjoyed the nyjer seed.
With the help of one of my subscribers Wanda, she informed me this was a Northern Flicker. With the big black patch on the front confirms in the description, This is a Northern Flicker feeding on suet though out the day today. Spent most of the time on this suet cake compared to the other two. Seem to be on and off the feeder today enjoying the suet.
How to deter squirrels from bird feeders. Not sure about you but I get so frustrated when I see squirrels controlling your bird feeders. It seems no matter what measures you go to they find a way to get to your bird feeder. Well one solution that seems to help is using Coles Flaming Squirrel Sauce as you can see in my video they just don’t want anything to do with the feed in the tray. This squirrel keeps coming back to see if it is a better spot but finally gives up. Over all seems to be doing its job, and will provide the birds much more time on the feeders.
