Hummingbirds arrive at the feeder for some early syrup before the battles for control over the feeders begin.

Nice close up of a female Ruby Throated hummingbird. Everyone is fighting over sugar water this time of year. The Syrup wars begin again.

Spotted a stick floating in the pond only to discover it was a small three foot alligator.

The one time I catch the redwing on camera he refuses to scream.

There was a lot of Crow activity by the cracked corn and a circling Turkey Vulture decided to check it out and see what everyone was so interested in. Near the end a Crow walks by and you can see just how large the Turkey Vulture is. Crows are not small birds but the Turkey Vulture towers above the Crow.

Canada Geese bring out their Goslings for some cracked corn and bread crumbs. After they stumble in to frame they are joined by their parents.

A male Rose-breasted Grosbeak stopped by for some seed. This is the first time I have seen this bird. It seems like he is most likely making an unusual stop in Florida on his way north for breeding season. He was nice enough to turn and face the camera. Another welcome bird guest.

These humming birds arrive so tiny and work hard to build their little nests near the end of March.

Maybe it was a bad molt or maybe he was in a fight. Do birds go bald with age?

When the mockingbirds are not chasing each other around fighting and keeping up their territory they like to keep an eye out for the fresh offerings. Whether is it meal worms or peanut butter they like to get to it first and they are not fond of sharing. When you start hearing their randomly ordered songs stolen from many different birds you know they are around. They also seem to like to make nests in some strange places like very small bushes or well established vines. I wonder if it is a distraction to protect their real nest somewhere else?

It turns out the Greedy Grackle was not greedy at all. The Grackle was bring worms back to it's fledglings. Now, Instead of carrying the meal worms to the nest the wise Grackle has brought the fledgling to the worms. Even with the worms right in front of it, the fledgling still demands to be fed any time the adult picks up a worm.

The Grackles eat their fill of meal worms then grab as many as they can carry and fly off. Such a greedy bird, or is it? Also note the puppet like "I'm outta here" head yoink just before it exits to the right and flies off.

This video edits out the "fluff" and brings you the birds. This is an hours worth of visitors to the birdbath in just under seven minutes. In this video we can see a great reason to make sure your birdbath is set on level ground. The larger birds have no issue with the water level. When the smaller birds arrive they can not reach the water on a little more than half of the perching area of the birdbath. Later in the video keep an eye out for the most thirsty, frustrated and clumsy American Gold Finch ever. See below for the list of the bird visitors. Sorry about the audio it was pretty windy.

These Cowbirds will eat until there is nothing left. The only breaks happen when they are spooked and fly off in a group as you see at the end. The black birds with the brown heads are male. The brown birds are female cowbirds. Keep an eye out for the confused Dove in the background and another that gets chased across the camera close up.
