The finch fest is still in full swing, except now the American Goldfinches have decided to join in. There are usually around seven to eight birds on the feeder at one time. I normally refill the feeder every week, but lately it has been more like every couple of days.
I've also had the pleasure of watching a female Rufous hummer at the hummingbird feeder. Normally, I take my feeder down, but there is a woodpecker that is a sugar addict and can't get enough of the sugar water. I first spotted the Rufous on December 11th. I think there might even be a second Rufous visiting the feeder. Could this be a sign that we are in for a very mild winter in South Texas?
