It snowed and our bird friends put on a show. Our finches visited the salad bar.
The table was solid ice and the blue jays just slid on in for take out. . .
picked up their order. . .
and flew away!
The comical looking titmouse partook of his share of the meal.
The cardinal decided to just sit and look gorgeous!
I think these little fellows are so cute! Know what they are? Hint: Their name is in the list below.
We just love watching the birds! To name a few, we have cardinals, blue jays, titmice, red-bellied woodpeckers, downy woodpeckers, wrens, purple and yellow goldfinches, sparrows, juncos, starlings, doves, pigeons, and chickadees.
They say birds have a knack for knowing when a winter storm is approaching.
If the feeders are jam-packed with birds, and if the birds linger until past their usual last-call time, you can bet bad weather is on the way. Birds are sensitive to atmospheric pressure, and the lows that precede a storm are a signal to stock up while the getting is good.
Are the birds eating you out of house and home this winter?
