I filled the feeders with sunflower seeds last week. All the chickadees, nuthatches and hairy woodpeckers immediately found them.|
They like how I let the tree alonside the house grow up. They sit in it between flights to the feeder.
They also like the big Varigated Japanese Willow that has taken over the yard. It's a huge spot for them to retreat to.
I found the suet feeder the other day.
I bought a huge amount of beef kidney fat from a butcher shop for twenty cents a pound. I use it for making soap, but this is so handy to have it to fill the feeder.
Only I need a window to put it outside of.
I think I will climb up onto the loft and open that little window and put a nail in the top of the frame and hang it in front of that window. I only see white sky out of that window all winter. That woudl be foth good for me and good for the birds! I think I'll do that today!
I wonder why I don't get different birds, though.
