Welcomed Friends

The bird feeders didn't arrive until the third trip and I must admit that I just picked up the seed a few days ago at a Tractor Supply store that is close by.  Anyway, I filled the feeders and then the waiting began.  But two days later, as the Prez and I returned from our walk down the gravel road with Moon and Copper, we saw some interesting activity.  We saw feathered friends picking away at the seed and the suet.  Now I just have to take a few pictures with birds in them!


I don't want to get too excited, but there's been a nice Red Tail Hawk frequently the edge of the yard.  Oh we also have geese flying over twice a day.  There's a pond close by which I know I want to explore.  I do know that the "locals" have found the feeders because they are very active with Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, Chicadees and Nuthatches.

are you having lots of black birds or crows? we are buried in crows, like in the movie The Birds, thousands of them, and the field where bob flies his RC planes he says they sit there and there are acres of them. yesterday TxWisGirl posted her trees are full of them.

A house is not a home without a few bird feeders! Looking forward to more photos of the locals. :)

You'll get hawks if you have feeders. Right here in the city I looked out the front window one day and we had one sitting in our tree right next to the feeder. I shudder to think....

The birds always have a way of telling their friends about new places to eat--The squirrels seem to tell the entire county! :-)

Sweet! Won't be long before they tell their friends and have a party!
