I had a great weekend of bird watching, I saw a mom Wren and her 3 babies at the bird feeders when I was staying with my son over the weekend. The baby birds also had a bath in the bird bath and would beg their mom for food and she would pick up seed and place it in their mouth, so adorable. We bought a new wire cage suet holder and hung it outside by the back porch and this morning I saw the first bird to use it was a Titmouse. Also lots of Grackle, Doves, Sparrows, Blackcap Chickadees, and a couple of Bluejays who were loving the sunflower seeds and would get one and take it to a nearby tree and crack it open, so fun to watch.
A Brown Thrasher was really enjoying the yard, their common name describes the behaviour of these birds when searching for food on the ground they use their long bills to "thrash" through dirt or dead leaves. They are related to the Mockingbird and such a impressive looking bird and rather large in size, the smaller birds seemed to be scared and would fly away when he or she would come around.
