Inspired by John's aunts out in Washington state, I decided to put out suet for the birds. Boy, do they love that! I also got a bird seed dispenser. Here are some of the birds I've had so far:
|A White-breasted Nuthatch. These guys can walk upside down on trees and hang up-side down from the feeder.|
|My favorite: a white-breasted nuthatch. These birds are so pretty with their blue bodies and white faces.|
|I don't know what this is. It kind of looks like a bluebird to me, but it's not really that blue. Does anybody know what it is?|
|A downy woodpecker.|
We also have cardinals, but they don't eat from either of the feeders. They prefer to pick up bits that have dropped onto the ground.
|Monsieur and.....|| |
|Madame in a tree.|
We also have a stray cat. Do you think I should start feeding her, too? Maybe she hangs around here in hopes of catching a bird and she doesn't need me to feed her!
