Just a few of the many different hungry visitors we have had so far!
A beautiful woodpecker from a nearby forest comes regularly to visit.
The Eurasian Blue Tit shows up every morning for a treat.
The Great Tit always plucks out the sunflower seeds.
A nuthatch showed up one evening just before dark to get a bite before retiring for the night.
The biggest surprise to see was the robin at the coconut early one morning. This cute bird mostly looks on the ground for food. This picture was a lucky capture, though not too sharp. The robin came and left again so fast that the there was not time to focus on the bird correctly.
There is an abundance of tree sparrows here and they come regularily to the coconuts for a bite. There was still a little bit of food in this one, though you don’t see it in the image. We usually have a couple of extra ones prepared so we can replace empty ones with full ones right away.
It was starting to snow and these two were simutaneously eating. A tree sparrow was waiting in the background for his turn.
Several siskins started to arrive around the middle of February and quickly found the food filled coconuts.
