After my Bird Walk, I bought a new feeder. Bugs, Nuts & Fruits.
It's a large cylinder and it looks a little something like this....
I was very curious how long it would take my birds to find it. Would they like it? Who would eat from it?
The sweet Chickadees found it first, within a few hours. They dipped and dived and pecked at it for hours.
Then it was ON. I don't think there's a single bird in our yard who has not feasted from this awesome concoction of treats! I was happy I put it up right before the snow. It was THE PLACE TO BE during those two days of heavy snow. See for yourself!
After the Chickadees, my man Harry was the next to arrive. He pretty much made it his mission to live next to this new feeder. Without fail, if I looked out the window, he was sitting on the branch right above. My friend Carissa was here for a while last week and she was amazed at how he stayed in that one place dipping down to get a snack every once in a while.
Then came the Blue Jays.....
There was a pair....one would snack and the other would hang out on a branch above, almost like he/she was on lookout duty!
Anyone recognize this next bird? I have no idea what bird this is but he/she is a cutie!
Then came the Robins......and I was amazed....I've never seen them eat anything from a feeder. They're ground feeders! I'm assuming this was because of the snow!?!?
And, of course, the wren was there a lot. He's one of the easiest birds to photograph because he's less skittish.
I didn't get any pictures of the other bird visitors but I can assure you there were plenty. Even my sweet Towhees.
Anyway, thanks for indulging me. I was so thankful to have the new feeder last week. It was almost like a little project I had to keep me busy! I just noticed this morning that the last piece of the feeder was eaten off this morning. I'm hoping the bird store has another one in stock. When I bought this one, it was the last one on the shelf. And now I'm kind of addicted.....along with the birds!
