There is an area in High Park where some birds are used to being fed:
Chickadees, Nuthatches and even a Downy Woodpecker are very trusting:
Of course, the Mallards want to join in:
Species list: great blue heron, double-crested cormorant, Canada goose, mallard, wood duck, ring-billed gull, rock pigeon, downy woodpecker, blue jay, American crow, black-capped chickadee, red-breasted nuthatch, white-breasted nuthatch, brown creeper, house sparrow, red-winged blackbird, common grackle, northern cardinal, American goldfinch, song sparrow. (20 species)
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, And still more, later flowers for the bees – Keats
can’t believe how trusting those birds are……wonderful……
Great pictures. Thanks.
Your photographs are wonderful today! The light was perfect. Those wood ducks should be on a magazine cover!
