Ball o' Bushtits

Bushtit"Come join us--there's plenty of room!" Bushtits, Beaverton, Oregon, 8 December 2011 by Greg Gillson.

 

One of the familiar Pacific NW backyard birds, especially west of the Cascades, is the Bushtit. While they glean the foliage in little straggling twittering flocks, they all share pleasantly at the suet feeder. How many are there on this suet feeder? Over 20 (not counting the one on the fence)!

  1. Oh, I miss my Bushtits! When I lived in Keizer I had them all over my suet feeders just like in your photo - a repairman saw them one day and said "wow, them's a mess a birds!" Great photo, and thanks!
