Bird notes - Mon, Jul 18, 2016

A lot of bird activity has existed around our home this month with the young birds visiting.

Fledgling and now young birds foraging on their own visiting our yard in mid-July include:

  • HOFI
  • COGR
  • AMRO
  • NOCA
  • BAOR
  • NOFL

Bird visiting our feeders and flowers in recent days:

  • WBNU
  • ETTI
  • BCCH
  • HAWO
  • DOWO
  • NOFL
  • RBWO
  • HOFI
  • COGR
  • AMRO
  • NOCA
  • MODO
  • HOSP
  • Blue Jay

Around mid-day, three young BAOR foraged on our flowers, the older plants that produced seeds. The orioles fed low, near the ground. At one time, all three clung to the same flower stalk, tall coreopsis, I think.

One young BAOR perched on a tomato cage and poked at a small, ripening tomato. Then it spent several minutes tugging and poking at a green bean pod.

One green bean plant tangled a feeder vine or whatever up and around one of the tomato cages. A few green beans are hanging about 20 inches form the ground next to the upside-down pyramid-shaped tomato cages. The young BAOR perched on the horizontal metal rung of the cage and tugged hard and hammered at the green bean without much success.

The young birds are learning.

A young AMOR foraged in the oval flower bed near the south side of our house. And a few feet away, an adult AMRO laid on the lawn with it's belly flat on the ground, chilling.

At least two young NOCAs foraged on the ground in the same oval flower bed while an adult male NOCA foraged nearby.
