The Greenville County Bird Club in conjunction with the Friends of the Reedy
River will be doing a series of bird counts along the Reedy River from it's
origin in Travelers Rest, SC to Lake Greenwood. Our first count is this
Saturday, January 26th at 8:00 A.M. .We will cover the area of the river in
Metropolitan Greenville in our first count.
We will meet at Cleveland Park in downtown Greenville, SC in the large
parking lot near the Stables, corner of Woodland and Lakehurst. We are
looking for birders in the area to help out with the counts, so all are
welcome to attend.
On the subject of feeding birds and making them tame. I started feeding
mealworms several months ago to attract Bluebirds. Since I live in a rather
wooded area I did not have much luck, but my Carolina Wrens really appeared
to enjoy the worms so I kept on putting them out. I was putting them out in
the evening, but when the weather turned cool I waited until the morning.
Occasionally, I would forget to put them out in my rush to get my son to
school and then to work. First the wrens at dawn, started singing on the
deck rail outside my bedroom window to remind me to feed them. Generally
while doing my hair in the morning, I open a pair of shutters that overlooks
my backyard to see who is at the feeders. On two of the last three mornings,
a wren as soon as I open the shutters jumps up on the window sill and starts
pecking on the window. I guess
the early bird gets the worms.
