For the Birds

If you don't have a bird feeder or feeders hanging in your yard, now is the time to do so. The Great Backyard Bird Count will be held February 12-15, 2010. Why not join in and help count the birds this year. You can get all the information by visiting www.birdsource.org/gbbc/ Not only will you be helping to feed and count the birds you'll also be treated everyday to the beauty of these little and large wonders. Pictured is a tiny House Wren. This little bird is always a delight to see. A pair of them found a way into the screened porch this spring and built their nest in a folded up lounge chair before I knew what they were up to. Even though I had to remove it they went right on with the construction of their new home in another location.

  1. I will have to try this. My brother made us a cedar bird feeder for the woodpeckers. Hopes in the wood where you put suet. They are having a ball out there. See you soon I hope.
