Wow, Tweet and See has had a hard month!
Our area of the country is in a severe drought. We had the least amount of rain in August that has ever been recorded in a month in our area.
I think the birds have left for greener pastures and better water. My birdbath actually evaporates before it even has a chance to grow algae in it!
Here is my microscopic list for this month. BUT, I want you to know that I just purchased more black oil sunflowers and have readjusted both of my feeding stations this morning in an effort to woo some birds back. As we are entering September, some of our birds will be beginning their migratory flight, and we are waiting for our Sandhill Cranes to be arriving within the next SIX WEEKS!
- Barn swallow
- Carolina Chickadee
- Northern Cardinal
- House finch
- Tufted Titmouse
- Blue Jay
- Mourning Dove
- Rock Dove
- Brown-headed Nuthatch
- Carolina Wren
- Red-Headed Woodpecker*
My red-headed woodpecker is a life bird!!! And I will tell you, the pictures do not do them justice!
How has your bird watching been this month?
