Check out the size of that eye, no wonder they have awesome binocular vision. That is one fierce lookin bird. Gorgeous eyes.
When I had this bird in my flight the local songbirds went balllistic, I have video of them strifing the cage and she was going stir crazy she wanted them badly, I relased her the next day. I left feed out for her for two weeks.

Jay,

They are a central US / Mexico bird. I am on the far eastern edge of their range here as they usually prefer more open scrub country.

I too love woodpeckers, and we have a fairly large variety here, but I have only seen two or three species come to the feeder. I have tried a number of times to get pictures of the Red-headed, and Pileated woodpeckers in the area without success.

Two-fer


These two never come down to the feeder, but they love the tall White Oak in the back yard.

Western King Bird & Eastern Bluebird

CBL : lovely bird, didn't like her eating mice tho but they have no choice, they have to kill others for their survival.

Chuck: beautiful wood pecker, quite different from what we see in India.
Beautiful birds too. Thanks for the pics.

Please read and remember while going to vets and don't let the vet euthanize your bird:
1)when you go to a vet, tell him/her that the bird is ALWAYS your pet, (unless you know the vet and know they will not euthanize) 2)You STAY with the bird, even while they are taking samples for tests or whatever 3) You NEVER walk away and leave the bird with vet. Else... they may just Euthanize it.

If you ever get the pics, I would love to see them.

Kiddy ya, not nice but when u have a bird or any critter you have to feed them the proper diet that they would eat in the wild. In the one pic, it is on a woodcock. I found it on my front lawn after a storm. So I gave it to the bird. They eat, mice, birds, and frogs, and Im sure any bug they can find. So if it is in their natural diet, I must supply. We have stores here that sell them kiddy. Not nice but was a necessity.

Sad for a bird lover. Either I can't raise them or I can't supply them the proper diet, if they eat flesh etc I don't know if I can give them from stores coz that will be dead. I know you did out of necessity but I can't throw a life to a life. I am not that strong to see anyone dying. All are equal, all bear pain. I can't see one dying because of me or because I prefer someone else's life, Sorry I know our opinions don't match here but it's OK everyone is different.

Mocking Bird


This one doesn't feed off the feeder, but it loves to poke around under my fly boxes. I think they are more of an insect eater that a seed eater.
