Hello I am Seth, your bird watcher and reporter, with some important news today. Red-winged Blackbirds have been coming to our feeders and right now we are calling our feeders Blackbird Fortress.

Red-winged Blackbirds are Coming to Our Feeders and are Eating Us Out of Seed!

March 30, 2015 - 11:05am -- Laura Crawford

Hello bird watchers, this is Seth your bird reporter and I have some good news about Mrs. Crawford's class. Even though the numbers have dropped on our smaller birds the numbers on our big birds has improved with some new birds visiting our feeders. The Red-winged Blackbird has starting coming to our feeders and has been eating a lot of our seed, so we are running out of seed to fill the bird feeders. I wonder if their stomachs are endless pits because of how much  they eat.
