More Birdbath Pics
I saw a blog on the Audubon web site that had a couple of things of interest to me. It was under the title "Spoiling Birds?" One was "Delayed Migration:" This addressed the issue I raised on 9/07/08, and they do not feel that feeders cause birds to halt their migration. The other issue is titled, "Predation:" This assuaged my fear that, I am setting up the birds to be easy kills, for all the wild cats that my neighbor is feeding.
I saw this pic, and I am not sure what it is. I guess it is an ordinary house sparrow, but it has a yellow belly. Birds Of Pa mentions a dickcissel, a similar species with a yellow belly, but I do not believe that is what this one is. Here is another pic.
