Nesting environment American Goldfinches
Repost from last summer season. Ok, in some cases birding is simply serendipity magic. I am researching American Goldfinches( much more on that particular later) as well as intended to see a nest. Phil Brown (NH Audubon remarkable birder )was birding with Ignacio Oreamuno( Costa Rican bird overview that has a bird-friendly coffee ranch, was consuming coffee as well as using Stokes DLS field glasses) as well as a goldfinch flies right in front of them as well as goes to a nest. Phil messages me. I fly there, as well as we have a good time enjoying Mrs. Goldfinch breeding. Women American Goldfinches remain on the nest virtually constantly till the nestlings have to do with 4 days old as well as she is fed regurgitated seeds by the man. That has to do with 24,480 mins of resting!! Reproduction is an extremely participating endeavor in between the man as well as the woman; she shields the nest by constantly resting, he gives all the food to her as well as nestlings. After day 4, the nestlings are fed by both moms and dads. Oh, as well as did I point out an Olive-sided Flycatcher turned up as well as sidetracked us? Luck? Or implied to be?
Note: All nest pictures were taken at a range with a lengthy telephoto superzoom electronic camera at 2000 mm. Nikon P950. It is very vital not to disrupt nests.
