Jeff,

   Neat video. They are one of my favorite birds. We saw a big one on a dead snag our boat outing Sunday morning but it was backlit by the sky and we could not get pictures of it - just a silhouette.

Actually the female comes in only once a day (well, as far as I know,) before sunset usually, stays about as long as that video, and is gone. This is the first I've seen the male since snow.

I'm mad at the blue jays. ;) Fed them all winter, now hiding away all summer. Ungrateful bunch of feed raiders. :D :D

Did see some new geese chicks yesterday waddling along with the goose and gander on a horse ranch near where I was working. There is some ponds there with cattails around them. They have a nest in them, built up high and dry. Well, I guess they don't need that now. Free range Canada geese now. :D

Nice video. I have them around here. Just don't see them much.  
This one picture took me a while. I was always on the wrong side of the tree. ;D 
                          





This is what I find in the woods.
                      



And under the tree.
                          




I bet I can count on one hand how many times I have seen those wood peckers.

When the WoodPeckers hit a tree, it's already infested with ants, and that's what they're after!

I see a few every year. Saw one yesterday fly across the road by 'the long swamp'. One was around here this winter, but not the suet. He was hammering on a dead limb on the big yard maple. Probably some maple borer in that dead wood. Seen one one day clinging to a telephone pole up the road from the house and remained motionless for quite awhile. Don't see many on the woodlot, not a lot of old wood, but they will find a bad fir once in awhile and peck at the stump wood.
Move'n on.

I did see a Baltimore oriole yesterday in the big yard maple. No photo though. Haven't seen one here in a long time. Might have always been here and never laid eyes on them for awhile. :)

I have good luck with grape jelly. We put out oranges and the orioles that we get don't seem to like them.   ::)  So grape  jelly it is. I have 2 feeders because I get so many. No big deal to have 2 feeding and another waiting.

 :D

We use to put out oranges on a nail. They would stay for about 2 weeks and be gone. Than I bought this feeder with a place for an orange and jelly. I guess they like the jelly more,because they hardly touch the oranges. And they stay for the whole summer now.

The male bluebird that came earlier this year to the nest box has returned, still no mate with him. He has been singing his heart out for 3 days now. About 4 miles away, friends have a nesting pair that came in the middle of June. We're still hoping a female comes along for our bluebird.

We have a nesting pair of Eastern Phoebe under the porch eaves.
Video of the chicks a week ago.



Video from today.  I can see 4 heads in there.

I think Phoebes are the most persistent and prolific birds when it comes to nesting time!

I have one nesting under the eaves on the back of the garage that is in the process of hatching her second batch, being this early, she's likely to go for a third!

Saw a hen turkey yesterday leading 12 chicks down the road by the woodlot. They all flew up into the trees as I drove closer. :)
