American Goldfinch and Pine Siskin Spring Migration


American Goldfinch and Pine Siskin Spring Migration
The American Goldfinch and Pine Siskin spring migration was pretty impressive in mid to late April up in the North Carolina Mountains. One day in early April the resident House Finch couple that call the Backyard home all year were set upon by their avian relatives by the dozens. For two weeks it was several pounds of sunflower chips a day eaten by the hungry finches on their way north and also a lot of stops for water at the mountain stream. 🔴 New HD videos uploaded several days a week.

Pileated Woodpeckers Hunt and Eat Juicy Grubs



The Pileated Woodpeckers are finding some huge high-protein grubs or wood boring beetle larvae in that rotting tree stump they've been working on and hearing the activity of the grubs helps the woodpeckers find them. They are smart and use the old stump like a stockpile. Rather than tear it all up at once they are working it slowly and come back for more grubs that will grow in it. Sort of like a grub warehouse!

Red Squirrel Kittens Out of the Nest and Bird Songs Bonus



Its always a joy when the red squirrel kittens leave their mountain forest nest in spring and show up on the Hemlock Tree feeder. Cameos by beautiful Blue Jays and some nice bird calls and songs you should recognize. They are so interactive and unafraid at this age, but the Gray Squirrels are run off even by these little guys. There are at least 3 this year and one little on is almost all gray which is unusual. More on it later.

Pileated Woodpecker Tree Stump Removal Service





A mating pair of Pileated Woodpeckers are working to remove an old Tulip/Poplar Tree stump next to the deck. The tree was starting to get way to big for the area - you don't want these behemoth trees growing near a foundation. But I left the stump knowing that it would be a great feeding position for birds and squirrels and would eventually attract the big Woodies - Success!! 🔴 New HD videos uploaded weekly.

Mother Black Bear With Two Cubs a Meditation




I spent Earth Day in Cade's Cove at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and was fortunate to come across a mother Black Bear and her two cubs who judging by their size are well into their second year and will probably be on their own by the end of Summer. They spend two years with their mother learning about life and survival before striking out on their own. I really enjoyed the ambiance of this long-range view of the bears out in the open in their natural environment and I hope that comes across. There are few places left in the east US where these amazing creatures can live their lives out naturally without fear. Enjoy!

Secret Life of Marsh Rabbits Documentary



Nature's Chocolate Bunny. I captured new behind the scenes footage of the life of a marsh rabbit in the wild. The Marsh Rabbit is a smaller and much darker version of the more familiar eastern cottontail rabbit, which is best known for its conspicuous cotton puff tail and long ears. In contrast, the marsh rabbit has a very small gray-brown tail and short ears. Marsh rabbits are almost dark chocolate colored and somewhat similar in appearance to guinea pigs.
