Purple Finches, Carolina Wrens winter feeding birds

Our Rivercrest birds continue to keep me busy taking pictures and making videos to share with you all.  These birds seem to come about every 15 minutes - sometime closer together- to feed.  They have their favorite perches and some are shy while others are downright bullies!

The birds are purple finches, tufted titmouse, Carolina wren, Cardinal, Nuthatch, Carolina Chickadee, Mockingbird, Blue Jay, European Sparrow

We feed them sunflower seeds, thistle seeds and a suet/seed combination feed from Lowes - they are the Carolina Wren's favorite.

A Wren feeding at our suet feeder video

Please enjoy this little video of one of our Carolina Wrens feeding at his/her favorite feeder - the suet feeder.  We have to replace this about every 3 weeks.  A couple of wrens keep it occupied.
