My new bird feeder came yesterday so I promptly went about putting it together and then set it up out near the lilacs.
It’s on a tall pole so I plopped it down into the existing metal pole that the flower girl frame is wired to.
If you were here over the summer you may remember my morning glory flower girlie.
I can’t wait to regrow her again this year!
The bird feeder has extra hooks for more feeders and a bird bath but I won’t put that out until it’s warm enough. I’m not sure if I’ll leave it there permanently, but for now it works and will help fertilize the bucket that the flowers will grow in this spring.
I know I’m just feeding the house sparrows mainly at the moment, but I’m hoping the new feeder will bring more of the native bird species like the flicker who returned twice yesterday to nibble on seed.
It didn’t take too long for the sparrows to catch on to the new feeder:
Not that I had much time to sit at the window bird watching. 🤨
Draco, our lead sled dog and our stud dog, has decided to blow his coat (it’s a husky thing) right in the middle of winter which means I have to brush him out (so he can grow it back in and blow it out again this spring!).
I got most of it brushed out but there’s still quite a bit left so guess what I’m going to be doing today? 😆
