Increased Numbers at Feeders?
- Has anyone noticed an increased number of birds at the feeders in the last couple of days? I kinda expected there to be more coming during the cold blitz we had, but my numbers have increased dramatically in the last 4-5 days. I have well over 100 Chipping Sparrow this morning and close to that in Goldfinches. I have never seen so many goldfinches at one time before! There are double the number of Mourning Doves, Cowbirds, and Red-Winged Blackbirds. There are usually only a couple Titmouse and Chickadee and this morning I counted 6 Titmouse.
There were easily close to 300 birds out there this morning and for the first time in a long time, there are even 2 Painted Buntings. Anyone else having more visitors?
