South slope Logsden Ridge above Pettibone. Male BHGB feeding what looked to be a female (very pale yellow w no orange shades) fledgling this afternoon.  Gave it both black sunflower it had pre-hulled and some suet.  Mixed flock of Am and Lesser GF have begun working Coreopsis, oxeye daisy and all the assorted dandelion seed heads en masse, but are still visiting the nyger thistle feeders with enthusiasm.Very few starlings; no Brewer's or RWBBs compared to just a few days ago.  They must be out working all the cut grass fields.  Linseed field below us was also just harvested so I suspect they are enjoying that.Carma Henry
