Feed the Birds!

After another snow last night, we had quite a crew show up for breakfast this morning! Don't forget to keep a fresh water source and food out for your feathered (and furry) friends. We are using a solar birdbath from Gardener's Supply, and, so far it hasn't frozen up once!

    I like this. Thanks for reminding us to put water out. We've had extremely cold weather here in Connecticut.

    Thanks, Linda & Kelli ! I bought a solar bird bath from Gardener's Supply on-line and, I must say, so far it has not frozen up! Lots less expensive to purchase than the heated bird baths too.

    I just went to Rural King and stocked up on peanuts for the bluejays. Beautiful pictures.

    I can't image a garden without birds. Very good point about the water, Barb. We have a lot of snow birds of the avian sort in addition to the human kind in Florida in the winter, so I am going through a lot of seed, happily.

    You are right, Douglas ~ it is worth the price of admission for the show they put on!

    I like squirrels but they destroy the bird feeders

    Love it! I'm in Idaho, and I wish I had those east coast birds- so pretty!

    Daniel - I feed the squirrels at a couple separate feeders and they mostly go for the easier food and ignore the birdfeeders. Jenny, glad you liked our Eastern birds. I'll bet you have some that I wish I had here too : )

    Thanks, Sharon! You would have giggled if you had seen me taking these with the lens up against the glass, scrunched between the blinds so the birds wouldn't see me: )
