What a blessing to have such small bird visitors to my area. These are some of my favorite smaller birds that often spend the spring breeding season in and around my home.
Personal Notes: The Black-Capped Chickadee can be a very entertaining bird in their own right - they are inquisitive, smart, and tolerate people around the feeders. They have several distinct songs or calls. Food preference is meaty seeds such as shelled peanuts, Sunflower Kernels, or Whole Sunflower Seeds. The Black Capped Chickadee will take a single seed and more often than not venture off into a nearby shelter and place the seed between their feet and peck at the goodness.
Personal Notes: I find the House Finch to be tolerant of other smaller birds and will share the feeder with birds of similar size. They have beautiful plumage with a pleasant demeanor.
The Very Impressive Hummingbird: Living in North America I put out my hummingbird feeders in March and keep them up until late October. During those months I have hundreds of Rufus and Ruby Throated Hummingbirds visit and what a sight they are to behold. I consider these birds as one of my most favorite to watch. They are territorial and will watch the feeder for other hummingbirds and when another Hummingbird approaches a skirmish will break out. Hummingbirds can be acclimatized to humans and will readily approach the feeder as I put out a new batch of nectar and even buzz around my head checking me out.
Personal Notes: I love observing birds year round, each species have their own unique personalities; the interactions between visitors to the feeder is very entertaining as some birds will give way to other species and will wait their turn to eat.
