More Pine Cone Birds!

The pine cone feeders are attracting more birds to the back yard (see previous post on how to make them and more photos). While I've seen mockingbirds in the yard, they don't stick around nor feeder at our sunflower seed feeders. This mockingbird was feeding on the pine cones on Christmas morning.

Dark-eyed juncos are common but are seen on the ground below the feeders. Several juncos were also feeding on the suet in the pine cones on Christmas morning.

Finally, I saw a pair of Eastern Bluebirds feeding on the cones but so quickly I didn't get a photo. None of these birds have been back since. I guess it was just a Christmas present for me!

Happy New Year everyone!


  1. Enjoyed this post! Need to get some pine cones so we can use up some old peanut butter. Mockingbirds rarely visit our woods.

    Hope your Christmas was a good one and that the new year will be a fun and productive one!

  2. Mockingbirds, juncos and blue birds such an exotic bird watch. Love it. Thanks.
