For the Birds
After mentioning the idea of a bird feeder to Sarah and getting her most enthusiastic feedback, we've set up a bird feeding station in the front yard. We've seen black-capped chickadees, a couple of woodpeckers, house finches, some tufted titmice(?), lots of cardinals, sparrows, and numerous others I have yet to identify. We have starlings (I think) and mourning doves on the ground as well. After watching a squirrel use the baffle as a spring board, Brian moved it up, which seems to have kept them on the ground rather than on the feeders. We're having a great time and it looks like the birds are pretty happy too!
