Banded Brown-Headed Cowbirds
- Hi Yakkers,
A friend of ours called today to ask if we knew of
anyone banding BHCBs. We said we would put out the
question to our Yakkers and see what happens. He saw
a male with a silver band on its leg.
At the homestead, we have fledged all seven
Mountain Chickadees, the Says's Phoebes have flown the
nest. At last count we have 41 baby Swallows in all
stages of development. A nest of House Wrens out back
have also fledged. The Brewers Blackbirds are so
numerous we can't count, and they have nests hidden
everywhere. The Bluebird babys are getting good size,
should be fledging soon. The bluebirds, Phoebes and
Black birds all come when Larry whistles to signal the
meal worms are being put out.
The Grosbeaks are still here in record numbers ,
hope they go up to nest soon--they're doing a lot of
mating rituals, so it shouldn't be long. Then maybe
the feed bill will go down!
Larry and Doris Robinson
