A day for the birds

Two female purple finches were seen over the weekend at the bird feeder near the Arboretum Visitor’s Center bridge. Last week, pine siskins were sighted. In this video, you’ll see a red breasted nuthatch on the suet feeder and hear the sounds of a white breasted nuthatch. Songbirds are plentiful now and are enjoying their winter habitat at the Arboretum as well as some supplemental feeding of suet and black oil sunflower seed. Come out for a walk and to see the birds…it’s always a good day to get outside and enjoy nature.
