Sooty Fox Sparrow
Before placing and constructing the bird drip, the presence of summer song-birds in the forest around my home were non-existent ... or, so I thought. I had often heard a few chirps in the woods, but ...
Ha! Two days after I turned the water on at the drip, Robbins, Juncos, Warblers, Chickadees, Nuthatches, and a host of song birds appeared ... almost as if they had magically heard the dripping of the water from miles away.
On the morning of day 2, there were 12 different species of song-birds flocking to the drip ... in masses. I was blown away!
During the morning of day 3 there were 16 different species of song birds flocking to the bird drip.
