I call it the Jelly Wars. They are waiting up in the maple tree above the feeding station every morning. Waiting, hopping from limb to limb till I go out the door. I put more jelly and orange halves in the feeding tray for them and add more worms for the bluebirds. They fuss and fight and argue over the best place in line. Some of them wait patiently and some butt in line, squawking all the while. Now that I have hung up the hummingbird feeder, some will go straight to that. I think some just like to dive bomb the others and cause a flurry of bright orange feathers. I love it.
Mostly I just watch them eat. I have noticed other birds sharing the jelly; catbirds and a Swainson's Thrush really like it too.
Since they are gobbling down at least a third cup of jelly a day, I was sure glad to see this on sale sign at the grocery store! Now that I have really looked them over and have good pix, I am ready to try to make a couple. Stay tuned for that!
