Serviceberries Are A Big Draw for Wildlife

To say that our serviceberries are a big draw for wildlife is an understatement. Ever since the first berry showed a shade of red, birds, chipmunks, and a squirrel have feasted on it. American robins and cedar waxwings are the most frequent visitors, but we have also seen house finches, Northern cardinals, a scarlet tanager, and a Baltimore oriole in it. When it isn’t raining I am in our backyard photographing the spectacle.
