New Residents!

Exciting news to report regarding the suet feeder tray experiment. In addition to the Eastern Phoebes, the Blue Jays and White Breasted Nuthatches are enjoying the setup.  But most importantly, it has attracted a new bird to Bon Bon Pond.  The Eastern Kingbird is a beautiful gray bird, reminiscent of the Phoebe, but with a white belly and an attractive white band across the tail.  My bible Birds of Minnesota describes these avians as ‘fruit and insect eaters.” Sorry, Stan, but they also enjoy suet--at least here.
