Birds at Bok Tower Gardens

I don’t think this eastern towhee liked me watching him eat. He was eating bird seed that had fallen to the ground from the feeder.

The blue jays were hogging the feeder.

The carolina wren was checking things out.

The cardinal came and sat down beside me on the bench, waiting for his turn at the feeder.

A bird I don’t see very often, the Great Crested Flycatcher was high up in a tree and of course, I had to take this picture right into the sun.

Squirrels were also eating the fallen seed under the feeder.

The northern flickers had taken over an old pileated woodpecker nest.  It was too early for babies when I was here in mid April.

Just a few of the birds I saw at Bok Tower Gardens in central Florida. Last year I had seen a lot of hummingbirds around the fire bushes by the old historic house. This year I headed straight for those bushes and all of this construction was going on in the gardens so no hummingbirds this year.

  1. Wonderful set of images. I’ve noticed how polite that the Cardinals can be while Blue Jays seem to be pushy all of the time.
