Birds

I mentioned in my last post that the nuthatches were back. This morning there was a downy woodpecker on my feeder, and there was a wren on some kind (a winter, I think) screeching in the shrubbery the day before yesterday. This influx of avian activity makes me think I should clean my feeders and get more food out. I only have a peanut feeder at the moment, which is mostly frequented by the ubiquitous sparrows and my fave chickadees. The downy must have been a bit desperate, as he seemed to be willing to put up with several sparrows shouting "get lost spotty" at him and pushing and shoving him off the pole. Though, to be honest, he didn't stay long. I'll have to get one of those suet blocks. The sparrows are so greedy and aggressive - oh well, Darwinism at work, I guess; it's no wonder they've taken over the world so successfully.
