  2. Cute! I filled my feeders yesterday. My finches aren't as good about distancing themselves there.

    1. Every 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.

  3. Our 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.

    1. Everyone slowing down a bit to think harder about what matters is not a bad thing!

  4. A 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.

    1. We 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.

  5. We are almost into lockdown - at midnight. Did our shopping yesterday. 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.

    1. We 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!

  6. My hummingbirds distance themselves on the feeders with great energy and noise! Hope you are feeling well.

    1. I 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!

  8. Great photo/comment. Actually, I'm more upset about the people who ignore social distancing.
