My photos above show the birds perched on a limb but they prefer to feed on the ground.

Primarily forages hopping or walking along the ground. Even when they come to feeders, they typically will feed on fallen seed below a feeder, or on tray feeders set on the ground.

    So do they eat off the ground at your place… one of these shots looks like the little fellow has something in his beak. Great shots your new set up it working out really well for you.

    Such lovely birds. We see them quite often on the ground below our feeders, too. Steve, your photographs are exceptional!

    Very lovely birds. I used to see them a lot during the winter in MD, but it’s a really special treat to see one here in FL.
