My Project FeederWatch count days were Wednesday and Thursday. That turned out good since I was at home all day Thanksgiving and able to watch the feeders in between preparing dinner.
Hairy Woodpecker on WBU Ranchette Retreat Feeder
Highlights: Foggy and overcast over the entire two day count (made for lousy photography!) The chickadees continue very strong as were the woodpeckers: 4 Hairy and 4 Downy Woodpeckers kept the suet feeders busy. Noticeably absent were goldfinches.
Special guest was the Pine Grosbeak, who visited all day Wednesday.
