For half of the day, the birds didn't quite know what to do with the berries. "Who ever heard of raspberries being ripe in March around here?"
Several birds poked a bill at the berries then grabbed a familiar sunflower seed before flying up to the closest tree to eat. But the eight berries continued to get attention. One woodpecker took a couple hours before it got up the nerve to actually eat one. Both Male and Female visited today.
The woodpecker knocked one to the ground - quite a surprise to this female cardinal, below.
Finally, one-by-one, the eight berries disappeared, even the one on the ground.
