A Couple of Backyard Birds

American Goldfinch

By: Pat Coate

The American Goldfinch is a common visitor to our backyard, visiting both the sunflower and nyjer seed feeders. And goldfinches never come alone, seems there is always a minimum of three when they show up and often many more. Their song, which they chatter quite effusively, seems so cheerful that I think they must be very happy birds.

White-breasted Nuthatch

The white-breasted nuthatch is another common bird in our backyard, though it seems to prefer to feed on insects in the maple tree rather than visit the feeders. Its brethren, the red-breasted nuthatch, however, shows no such aversion to visiting the sunflower feeder.
