Feeding Time

Feeders are emptying fast, with so many hungry beaks to feed!

In the above photo, most of the birds are goldfinches, but the one flying in appears to be a house finch.

Chickadees “hit and run” most of the time, gathering a seed and flying off to a safe location to open and eat it, sometimes flying a long way off.  I’ve read that they also hide seeds to feed on later.
