Gone to the birds!

Excited to have a house, I splurged a bought some bird feeders - a thistle feeder for finches and songbirds and a suet cage feeder for woodpeckers etc.

I bought them in the fall, filled them up, and not once saw a single bird.

Leaving for a month seems to have done the trick.

In the last hour I have seen gold finches, morning doves, a red wing blackbird, a downy woodpecker, house finches, chickadees, a couple of grackles, and even some crows across the street.

  1. That's exactly what happened here. We put up some feeders in the late fall, expecting to see birds throughout the winter. Not until the spring, did we get birds on a regular basis. I think they needed to know that there was food for them to eat here.
