The Bird Feeder and My Little Experiment

I just thought I would share this light hearted post with my sisters. I have had a lot of heavy stuff going on in my life right now and I really needed something to take my mind off things. Well, I love bird watching and even own a few birds (two spice finches and two parakeets). So a few months ago my db and I put out our own homemade bird feeder and added some seed. I didn't expect too many visitors but I have been pleasantly surprised! I have seen not only a variety of sparrows but also a pair of cardinals (which I hadn't seen up here in northern Minnesota in a long time), blue jays, black capped chickedees, slate colored juntos, purple finches, and a few others I haven't been able to identify yet. We have also seen a black squirrel. Even a rabbit! In addition, I put out an old finch nest basket I got from a pet store that my finches don't use much anymore just to see what would happen. At first the birds ignored it. But then I put seed in it. Soon the black capped chickedees were flying in and out. Then the squirrel came along and actually tipped it down to get the seed out! He was too big to fit inside. Now the birds are all chewing the straw off it for I assume nesting material.

It has been such a simple joy just to look out my living room or dining room window and watch all the animals and their antics. The birds, especially the cardinals who sing each morning, have brought music back into my life. I wake to it every morning. God really does provide us with everything we need!

So what kinds of birds do you see outside your window?

I have yellow and red finches that come to visit my feeder daily. sometimes the cardinals come. Sparrows, chickadees, and robins hopping around too.
I will be moving in a few weeks to the country. Can't wait to see what birds come to visit!!
They are such a joy to watch flit around. I find it very relaxing to watch them.

I love to see the birds too ( don't really know much about them though ). I can identify the robins, cardinals and sparrows. I usually put out a feeder for hummingbirds - they're really fun to watch.
We had some love birds a few years ago but don't have any now.

I've been feeding the birds and squirrels for about 13 years now. Love 2 watch them! The male cardinals R my favorite, bright red! We have a baffle on one pole to keep the squirrels away from that feeder. They run up into it, it's quite entertaining! My cat loves to sit and watch them also. Please send the black squirrel here, I've never seen one. I'm going to look up junto now, not sure what they look like. Have a great spring day everyone, even if it's snowing!

I love birds too!

Hey all. I too feed the birds and squirrels. I live in south texas by the gulf. I don't know all of the names of the different birds but I do get a nice variety. Of course the usual sparrows and pigeons but also a variety of doves and also grackles (a crow like bird), and depending on the season, cardinals woodpeckers, redwing black birds and jays and probally others I cant think of right now. I really enjoy watching them. It's so peaceful especially now with all that has been going on in my life. My pet bird, a black cap lory, that I hand fed and was with me for some time, died over a year ago and I just haven't been ready to get another pet bird yet. For now, I just enjoy the outdoor birds.

Thanks for sharing everyone! It is interesting to see what kinds of birds you see in different parts of the country. The yellow finches sound really interesting! And lovebirds jeanus? I wouldn't have guessed you'd see them in Texas. That is awesome! I used to have a pet love bird named Tweety who was so comical and spunky. They are my favorite pet birds of the smaller variety.

Thanks again for sharing! If anyone else wants to share feel free! Happy Easter everyone!

We have 2 bird feeders. I saw a huge Blue jay this morning. Plenty of cardinals (of course here in KY.). In the summer we have the yellow and purple finches, tuffed Titmouse, Pileated and downy wood peckers.
Three squirrels that jump onto the feeders, rabbits and at night we have the 4 deer that enjoy eating all of the seed.
