Strange bird at my Feeder

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Alvin Bates, Sep 25, 2008.

  1. Our hummers appear to have skipped town for the winter, but we have lots of chickadees, nuthatches, blue jays, harries and downies after the seeds. Then there is this strange one . . .

    It is (obviously) backlit, so some of the colours on his back are blown - had to snap in a hurry before he jumped down.

    No apologies for posting it here!
     
  2. I believe that is referred to as an "odd Duck" :)

    I have a neat new bird feeder that does not allow this bird. It has a top and base at a positive charge and the pegs and holes for food are negatively charged. No problems for birds, but four legged "birds" get a "correction" and tend not to come back.

    Strange - I can feed them by hand, in fact they will chase me around the yard looking for handouts but they sure do fly if I approach the feeder! Its like they know that using the feeder is a naughty thing.

    Never saw one of these in Canada (as if I knew everything available). The one we have is a "squirrel-buster", the gates close because a squirrel is too heavy, nothing said about chipmunks.
