November 2008 Bird Blog

Durham, NC  11/29/08

Right around 1:55 pm, there was a major feeding frenzy, in which about 10 birds competed for spots at two feeders.  Two, a Tufted Titmouse and a male House Finch, knocked a couple of other birds off perches in the process.  After about 5 minutes, it stopped and the feeders were rarely used from then on.

This Tufted Titmouse came right up to the window to check out what was inside, eventually deciding it wasn't that interesting.
