Bird Feeder

Filed under: Of Interest,Uncategorized — Stephen Shepherd @ 10:21 am

I started feeding the birds about two weeks ago.  I was just spreading the seeds out on the two tree stumps in my front yard and a friend gave me an old plastic feeder that was too small for their needs.  It holds about two pounds of seeds and is too small and then it is made out of plastic.  So when I get an opportunity I will build one of wood.

I have attracted sparrows, towhees, grosbeaks, chickadees, finches and even morning doves.  The dove and most of the other 50 or so birds feed on the ground under the feeder.  Birds are messy eaters but do pick up after themselves and are happy, most of the time.

I have also attracted a peregrin falcon that also seems to enjoy the arrangement.  The fence rail must be cold as the falcon is standing on one foot.

Gives a new meaning to the term ‘Bird Feeder’

Also have some other critters, squirrels, skunks and raccoons.

  1. I love watching the birds, but not sitting out in the cold lol. I’ve been meaning to get around to building a few Bird feeders myself for the birds around here.

    Can’t wait to see your birdfeeder when you get a chance to work on it!
