If you have been visiting my blog for a while, you know we like to feed the birds in the winter. I love taking their pictures outside my kitchen window. The cardinals, the tufted titmouses (they just love peanuts), the woodpeckers, the finches, the doves and hopefully the blue jays flock to our feeders. We spend many hours watching them eat from inside our kitchen.
We are now ready for winter. We bought a . . .
50 lb bag of sunflower seeds and. . .
two 35 lb bags of mixed seeds.
Charley went out on the deck today and put up two new feeders.
I think the birds will be happy and plump this winter.
These aren't our only feeders. We also have a big wooden one on a pole in the front yard and a couple more hanging from our apple trees. We also hang suet in the trees.
I am not putting the seeds in them yet, I'm waiting for the first flakes of snow to fall.
If you want, you can go here, and look at some of the pictures we took last year.
Do you feed birds in the winter?
