Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey

A number of small birds are going after the sunflower seeds in my wildflower garden. I hope they let a few drop to the ground for next years crop. I definitely plan to expand the wildflower garden/meadow.

Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey

A number of Black-capped Chickadee’s and Tufted “Black-crested” Titmouse  (Titmice?) have descended on my backyard wildflower meadow to gouge on the sunflower seeds.
