This bossy little wren is likely a return from last year, finding the two feeders as soon as I hung and filled them. Here, she is on the post at the bottom of the steps to my deck debating which one to visit next. Whatever she decides, we are sure to hear about it.
I put out two more feeders today in the back yard and it was as if the birds had been hanging around waiting. They were immediately in the flat feeder with the mixed nuts, and then in the feeder out under the trees.
This usually means they are returning birds since they are well-acquainted with the accommodations. Welcome back!
