Brian & Leanne & family!!
They had a humongous bag of sunflower seeds delivered to our house for Christmas.
Today I filled up the bird feeders before I left for work with their seed.
I see the birds have already dug in!
Update: Argh. Looks like the cam might have froze on one pic. I’ll reset this afternoon, if it doesn’t fix itself.
I was so sleepy last night, after the first day back to work after a long weekend.
We were heading up to bed and Jeff reminded me about the bird feeders. They were still hanging on the pole and I didn’t feel like wandering outside to put them in my car, like I have been every other night.
I was tired.
And the raccoon hadn’t been seen for a week.
And the feeders were practically empty.
The raccoon banged the bird feeders around, hung off the bird feeders, played a one-raccoon-band-rock number on the bird feeders, all night long.
Monty barked at the noise. All night. Oh yeah. All night long.
It made my husband very tired and cranky and miserable.
What is going to happen tonight?
I’ll put the bird feeders in the car.
I REALLY don’t remember inviting this guest to my back yard! No wonder my birdseed goes so fast!
Beautiful day out. My tulips in the front are open and so so beautiful!!
The birds are having a FEAST at my feeders. They can finish off a feeder full of niger seed in 48 hours! I have an entire flock visiting right now – I think they are some sort of warbler – yellow rumped maybe? There are easily 20 of them out there at a time.
Be sure to click on the photos to see the larger image. This Kodak Easyshare Z740 zooms in so well! Of course the birds were having such a feast I walked up closer too and they didn’t flinch!
