Bird Watching

We just put up a new squirrel-proof bird feeder. The birds seem to like it—We’ve had a lot of activity there lately! We have a good view through the kitchen window.

We’ve seen chickadees, tufted titmouses (titmice???), nuthatches, cardinals, Carolina wrens, goldfinches, and hairy woodpeckers.

We have had several young cardinals that seem nervous about perching on the feeder and stay on the deck, eating what falls. Occasionally, one will make some noise and the male cardinal will bring it some food.

Here’s a hummingbird at the hummingbird feeder.

The squirrels and chipmunks spend their time on the deck eating what falls. The seed in the feeder is lasting a lot longer now!
