Gee, I love it that some of you were intrigued by the fact that I had 'something interesting to share'... So, let me preface it first by saying... it's all about Birds!(If you don't care to read about birds, leave now, before you get sucked in--ha!!) I have loved watching birds, but my property is not especially conducive to doing this. I tried the side where our garden was, but it was too shady, the squirrels beat them to it, and eventually they stopped coming. I stopped for about a year... but... I still had the urge to watch them! So, last fall I took out the pole and a couple of my feeders, and put them at the corner of my house near the front. However, I did not ever see any birds there... and it was pretty darn hard to see the feeders there anyway... So, two weeks ago, I asked hubby to move the feeders to right in front of my office, as a last ditch effort. Well, that is a darn good spot! We have birds a LOT! I have to be careful about just walking in to my office tho, cause I startle and scare them away if they are eating. But, I have learned and have told everyone else in my house the same! So, location, location, location is the key! I have two mixed seed feeders, one thistle feeder and a suet cake. And here are pictures of my visitors:
It could be more than one visiting... not that good at comparing and such yet...
Well that is it for my 'Something Interesting'. I lead an exciting life, don't I? Ha!
If anyone can help with ID's, give me a shout here. I have to go study the differences between finches, wrens and sparrows now...
And I should finish the Blackbird piece tonite! Finally!!
