He or she was making quite a racket this morning.
I spotted a fox and her 2 cubs while on a bike ride.
Our neighbors used to feed the birds near our fence line which was conveniently within view of the kitchen sink and my desk. They evidently quit adding seed to the feeder though as I’ve seen no bird activity lately. This prompted me a few days ago to buy some seed, move an old feeder of mine and place it near the same location on our side of the fence. So far the only visitor has been this one.
We used to feed the birds regularly many years ago but I tired of the mess, weeding all the sprouts below the feeder and purchasing seed.
Some of the feeders I’ve made…
Barn & Silo bird feeder. The silo held thistle and the barn seeds. The top comes off both for filling. I made a lot of these. Some went to friends & family and some I sold.
Grain elevator bird feeder. The roof comes of for filling.
Some of the Bird Houses I’ve made over the years…
This one actually a Butterfly house.
Others we’ve purchased are hanging in the house. Don’t know how that was started…
Spotted this frog in our pond this afternoon.
Update: 05-20-2012. The nest is now empty. No signs of eggs or birds at all.
A pair of Brown Thrush have taken up residence in a Barberry bush in our yard. No sooner than they had the nest built these eggs appeared.
