Feeding birds!

Friday, March 04, 2011

This is one of our bird feeders---This is my bird feeder really. I like to have it where I can see it. Husband has another bird feeder at the front of the house, which I can't see from the kitchen window.
I think half the fun of feeding the birds, is to watch them swoop in, grab a peanut, or something, and leave.
We also have , what looks like a bird bath, beside the feeder. Ive only ever seen one bird, acturally bathe in this. They all use it get a drink of water. The water in this dish is heated so it won't freeze in the winter.

We don't get anything too exotic at our feeders. We get a lot of Jays---blue, and grey----If we leave the feeders full, too late in the spring, we do get coons and even bears, which isn't pleasant. The grey Jays in this area , we call, the Whiskey Jack. I do have a pair of partridge which come on a regular basis, and a lot of squirrels. That's probably because I put a lot of peanuts in the shell, along the railing of the deck.

It won't be long before these birds leave us and the geese fly over, heading for lakes north of us, and then the hummingbird feeders go up, ready for them.
I guess you could say that our life was sorta ""for the birds"".
They brought a bit of colour to our nothern landscape , over a long very white winter.

At this time of year, you gotta do what you gotta do!

    I just love bird feeders :)

    I have one off my front porch I can watch from my bay window. We are Cardinal country here.

    I also have a squirrel that lives in my tree. He likes to raid the bird feeder and is a joy to watch.

    Thanks for the blog, it brought a smile emoticon
