There are lots of different varieties of birds that come to sample my offerings. I saw one yesterday that I couldn't think of what it was. I went to get my Peterson's Field Guide, but guess what? I can't find it. It can't be far, I use it often.
Of all the different birds, there a more cardinals than any other kind. Just before I started writing this blog posting, I looked out and there must have been more than two dozen of them. Where did they all come from? My wife says the birds are hiding in the trees and bushes just watching and waiting for me to put the food out every morning. No, I don't leave it out over night because the raccoons get to it and have destroyed feeders trying to get all the food out. The first one that they destroyed was a big, expensive, wooden one. I now just buy the smaller plastic ones and also put a few scoops of seed on ground in three different areas all close to the main feeders. That way, more birds can eat at the same time. OK, so I and my place are going to the birds. . . but I like it that way. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
