Sometimes we do things a little different here in Baja. Nothing goes to waste. After cleaning the mornings catch, the bones go on our vulture feeder.
And then we have a Costa’s Feeder
Which doubles as a Xantuss’s feeder
The Gila Woodpeckers love it.
Which then works as a Sulfur Butterfly’s feeder
We also have a Finch feeder made from Cardon skeleton and we re-cycled a paint bucket lid
Which attracts Pyrrhuloxias, Black-headed Grosbeaks and Yellow variants
Which doubles for a feeder for this guy, Sharpie. He’s watching it rain. Probably for the first time in his life. We just ended a 6 year drought!
And a water feature I built out of discarded construction foam and cement. Solar powered water circulator.
We have fresh, clean water for Blue Grosbeaks
And Varied Buntings
I make all sorts of feeders out of discards, recycling for the Lesser Goldfinches
And coconuts (from our own coco palms) I carve hollows in to make feeders used by many that turn to nests later on
Feed on the ground works well for these White-winged Doves and California Quail
I think this guy has had enough!
But nobody can compete with these backyard feeders, Mr. & Mrs. Hooded Oriole share parenting feeding the babies.
Ahhhh..Baja. Ya gotta love it. http://birdswesee.com/
