Backyard Birds

Mainly a few Tufted Titmouse and Black-capped Chickadees this morning and afternoon, but a White-breasted Nuthatch and Northern Cardinal came to visit just now. I am going to need to reposition and alter the feeder to prevent the squirrels and deer from eating all the birdseed.

Squirrelly Behavior

I think I found out why the bird feeder was empty this morning.  The birds aren’t the only ones enjoying the free food. Thinking about it… Still Thinking… Let’s go this way… Got it… The big stretch… Peek-a-boo! What a show off. That was fun.

Backyard Birds

I think the rain is keeping the feeder birds at home this morning.       After lunch a Blue Jay and Black-capped Chickadee came for a snack.
