Recent visitors to the feeder

Since we put up the bird feeder, we’ve had a steady stream of chickadees and bushtits. Over the last two weeks we’ve finally had some newcomers. (Unfortunately I can’t claim credit for the photos. If you like them, please click the photos to visit the Flickr photographers.)

We had a cheeky starling one day too. The starlings have been by before, but have been put off by the wildly swinging feeder. But this one starling must have been very hungry. After he finally got a good grip on the mesh bag, he sat on the feeder for at least five minutes.
