There are many different species of birds in my backyard. All seasons will bring birds, some friendly some not so friendly. The three I am sharing here are the largest. The Robin, Mockingbird and Blackbird. I see these three all year round. The photo above are Grackels, in the Blackbird family. I will share about those another time.
The Robin likes to eat worms and insects from the ground. They never eat from a feeder, but they enjoy the bird bath daily in the summer.
Mockingbirds will attempt to eat from all kinds of feeders. They are somewhat aggressive and try to take over the yard. Sometimes called a bully bird. What is amazing is they can “mock” any bird sound they hear. They can sound like all the other birds in the yard. And they mimic sounds like car alarms as well. Pretty cool.
The Blackbirds always come in flocks. They do not try to bully other birds but they do make a mess. During the spring and summer I change the birdbath 2-3 times a day because of the Blackbirds. But they need water too. I have others I will share in another post. I really enjoy nature and bird life in my backyard.
