One of the things I like about this time of year is seeing the feeding that goes on in the backyard feeder. Often we see all different kinds of birds, with finches being the most common. Woodpeckers and Jays come in second (it's a tie).
I have to laugh at the squirrels that show up at my parents' feeder. They are fat and slow, but they understand how to infiltrate a feeder.
A big red tail showed up. He is a semi - regular to the feeder. I hear stories all the time about how hawks are being fed at people's bird feeders. This red tail is no exception.
Check out the feeder in this clip.
