This winter we’ve had the usual cast of characters hanging out at the feeding stations. My wife and I both have feeders set up outside the windows of our respective caves…I mean, offices. With snow covering the ground the last few days it seems that the number of visitors is up.
The house finches and titmouses love this small bird feeder outside my wife’s window. It’s small enough that the bigger birds like starlings can’t get in, though they try.
Outside my window the suet feeder is popular with downy woodpeckers, Carolina Wrens and chickadees. The mockingbirds like it too, perhaps because I put a few raisins in the suet when I make it. I also put a few peanuts and shelled sunflower seeds in there too.
Inside it’s the usual cast of characters too, doing the usual activities, like sleeping.
Come to think of it, Puddin might be on the right track. An afternoon nap on a snowy day sounds like a pretty good idea!
