The weather has change back to cold and icky.
in response I feel like my body is going back into hibernation.. I don't want to play outside in the cold.
upside, I really enjoy listening to the birds sing and waking up to there songs.
I am able to hang bird feeders out all year long due to where there hanging, high enough out of a bears reach. So i keep BOSS (black oil sunflower seeds) and suet up. Yesterday I saw a blue bird eating the suet :) that was a first. I have been getting the mental reminder to put up humming bird feeders for the littles that are coming in first and will be hungry and in need of nourishment . I finally remembered and hung one this am.. . . My home is high up on the mountain side and the red will shine bright like a beacon.
Do you enjoy putting out feeders?
Do you have to worry about bears visiting?
what breed of birds come to yours?
on my feeders through the winter we get chickadees, titmouse, suet get a variety of woodpecker species yet many of the smaller birds eat the suet also.
Fascinating part of feeding birds is, The birds let me know when a storm is coming in.. The come in to the feeders in hugh groups to fill up before the storm
when birds are migrating in or out, the feeders get hit with hugh flocks, I Love it and could sit and watch for hours, through out migration I fill feeders am and pm.. hungry little buggers.
LOL okay that was the am brain dump brought on by finally remembering to make the hummer juice and hanging it out.. 4:1 four parts water, to 1 sugar.. My feeder is red and I do not add the food coloring.. hhhmmm as I was typing that, I think I remember reading it doesn't have to be red.. now to go double check that thought to see if it is true or my imagination
