We are currently only feeding nectar and suet in our yard. Both feeders are very close to a kitchen window to facilitate close-up viewing and photography. Right now the suet is attracting the following:
Song, Fox, White-crowned and Golden-crowned Sparrows; Siskins; Chickadees; Nuthatches; Towhees; and Juncos.
Today (Friday, 7 April) I looked out to find a Yellow-rumped Warbler wrestling for a spot in the line-up. I grabbed the camera and took a few quick shots when it was suddenly pushed off the feeder by what I sometimes feel is the handsomest bird in the neighbourhood, this Northern Flicker. I think this is a female due to the lack of any cheek markings. So that’s eleven species today at this one feeder. Dennis
