DeleteRepliesReplyReplyKris PetersonMarch 25, 2020 at 7:05 PMCute! I filled my feeders yesterday. My finches aren't as good about distancing themselves there.ReplyDeleteRepliesHoover BooMarch 26, 2020 at 8:15 AMEvery time a new bird arrives at the urn, all the birds re-adjust themselves to maintain even spacing. It's quite fascinating. I guess food is different--every-bird-for-himself. DeleteRepliesReplyReplyLisa at GreenbowMarch 26, 2020 at 3:50 AMOur Goldfinches are just now turning to gold. It is fun to watch them almost daily begin the slow illumination. Distancing has given me more time to appreciate the changes in the seasons.ReplyDeleteRepliesHoover BooMarch 26, 2020 at 8:18 AMEveryone slowing down a bit to think harder about what matters is not a bad thing!DeleteRepliesReplyReplyluv2gardenMarch 26, 2020 at 9:07 AMA good chuckle. Our woodpeckers are very adept at social distancing. When other birds land on the feeder they whip around and scare them off. They're quite selfish re: sharing. Guess they didn't learn the "we share everything" mantra in kindergarten.ReplyDeleteRepliesHoover BooMarch 27, 2020 at 3:30 AMWe have the acorn woodpecker here. They feed and store acorns as a group and gather together several times during the day in the dead Eucalyptus nearby to peep to each other. Guess they paid attention in kindergarten! Here it is the western scrub jay that scares everyone out of the urn. At many times the size of the warblers and goldfinches, the jays are very intimidating.

Joined a long queue, outside the closed doors, waiting for the earliest bunch to come out, before we were allowed in ... 10 at a time or so. ReplyDeleteRepliesHoover BooMarch 27, 2020 at 3:40 AMWe saw the lines in SA on the news. That was good they kept the spacing as it does help. They are doing that here too. Best wishes for you all!DeleteRepliesReplyReplyMulchMaidMarch 26, 2020 at 10:43 PMMy hummingbirds distance themselves on the feeders with great energy and noise! Hope you are feeling well.ReplyDeleteRepliesHoover BooMarch 27, 2020 at 3:41 AMI put out feeders but usually one male ends up guarding the whole thing keeping all the others away. Not fair!! Hope you and family are well and coping!DeleteRepliesReplyReplyMulchMaidMarch 27, 2020 at 9:19 AMMy hummingbirds distance themselves on the feeders with great energy and noise!

DeleteRepliesReplyReplyJasonMarch 28, 2020 at 2:43 PMGreat photo/comment. Actually, I'm more upset about the people who ignore social distancing. ReplyDeleteRepliesHoover BooApril 3, 2020 at 11:48 AMYes, what's with that?!? Do they want to get sick? Even if not a serious case. Who wants a fever and headache?
