Yellow-bellied Sapsucker knocks on my door

Howdee all,

Seems like we have had just about any bird you can think of tap on our windows…ok, maybe I exaggerate. We have had Brown-headed nuthatch, Cardinal, Purple Finch, Black-capped Chickadee,American Robin,Downy Woodpecker, Red-breasted nuthatch, Ruby-crowned kinglet, Tufted Titmouse and a few more that I am probably forgetting.

Today we had a new visitor…wish the screen wasn’t in the way…

  1. OMG girl.. how do you get these birds to tap on your window like this? lol I'm amazed at the variety you have. The yellow bellied SP is too cute!

  2. Think you should bow to the inevitable and remove the screens so we can get a better view. Hee, hee ;)

  3. How cool is that? You must be the bird whisperer :)

  4. Awesome, I was going to say you have a lot of birds drilling at your window, never seen this myself, you must have some tasty windows ;-) Have a great weekend Dawn!

  5. Do you think possibly the motorhome is in the birds way? LOL!

  6. How cool. a neat visitor to your home, Dawn. Can not miss that pretty head and colors.

  7. Wow! That's so cool! Lovely shots!

  8. Now he has a beak like a sledge hammer Dawn, hope your window survives intact.

    Howdee Kimmy..well our windows are reflective..that is a problem..the birds see their reflection and tap at the intruder..

    Funny you should say that..I removed the screen from the bedroom window to get better photos of the window tapping birds..this one decided to tap on our bathroom window.:)

    Hee hee..wish I was the bird whisperer..but..its the reflective window

    hee hee..tasty windows indeed.

    Yes..this is the blessing and the curse of the reflective windows on the Homey..sadly a few birds have also died flying into them.

    A New England Life
