Raccoons dismantle P7000 Pond Fish Feeder

Raccoons dismantle P7000 Pond Fish Feeder. When I looked at the Koi Live Cam this morning I couldn’t figure out what all the mess was floating in the pond. Well the racoons has found the fish food in the P7000 Pond Fish Feeder and they took the spout off and flushed all the food into the pond.

I guess I need to get the trap and move these guys to another neighborhood.

Racoon Bandits are back!!

Homemade Suet Cakes for our Back Yard Birds

Homemade Suet Cakes for our Back Yard Birds. This is really my first time to make homemade suet cakes. But I knew the ones I had purchased from a big box store was not getting eaten.

I used the follow ingredients: 16 cups of birdseed included Sunflowers, millet, peanuts, freeze dried worms, sunflower chips, shelled peanuts, chopped tree nuts, Bark Butter Bits, cherries, cranberries and calcium. 2 1/2 cups of peanut butter 2 pounds of lard 2 store bought suet cakes Made up a total of 14 cakes.

This is very economical to do and your birds will appreciate your efforts. I will say it doesn’t take very long. My next diy will be a seed cylinder.

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Woodpecker in Ohio

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Woodpecker

This week was exciting to see this rare woodpecker for Ohio visit us two days in a row.  We first thought this was a American Three-toed but with the help of friends on social media this is a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Woodpecker. Hope we see it again tomorrow.

Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Woodpecker in Ohio visited our bird feeder several times today for the first time. After looking this Three Toed Woodpecker in Ohio we knew it was a rare one to see here in the midwest. Most of the time they live in the north western US and Canada.

The video below was him coming back the second time to enjoy the peanuts.

American Gold Finch wasn’t in a hurry on a windy day

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.
