Band-tailed Pigeons take over Feederwatch!

Band-tailed pigeons (Patagioenas fasciata) are some of the larger  native birds we find in our backyard. 

Flocks of over 35 at a time have come to jostle each other and eat in shifts from our feeder.


They usually eat acorns, nuts and small fruit that grows wild in the neighborhood.
But they LOVE the shelled peanuts in the bottom of the feeder tray!!
