Dirty Little Turdy-birdie

Yellow-rumped Warbler at Bird Feeder

Goldfinches used to flock to this feeder, sometimes five or more at a time, each dining delightfully at their station in peace. That was until this yellow-rumped warbler showed up. Now any time a goldfinch appears, this little monster swoops down and chases them away. I considered creative ways to let the finch know he was not welcome, but then decided that it was nature’s way and if the goldfinches want it badly enough, they will find their own solutions. I’ll just keep watching the show.

  1. Civil war in your back yard…or uncivil. Sounds like the silly hummers. Plenty for all but they spend half their energy gaurding and dive bombing. You are waise to spend your energy on observing vs an impossible fix.
