I have never had bird feeders in my garden before, I was always convinced that in our mild climate the garden alone provided plenty of food for the visiting birds and over the years I have tried to plant things that would facilitate that.
Then I recently read that hanging bird feeders outside of your windows was a good way to keep house cats entertained...and to feed wild birds at the same time.
So, in what begin as an attempt to have a happier Miss Tiggley, I now have several bird feeders in the garden...outside of the bay window in the entry hall...
another by the kitchen...
and for Mother's Day I received a very charming humming bird feeder as a gift.
I decided to put this one by the Tree Man to keep him company, Miss Twiggley and I can also watch the action from the office
I really did this for Miss Twiggley and it certainly is keeping her entertained, but I can't tell you how much I am enjoying watching the birds too. Now I must get a book on the birds of our area so I can start to identify these wonderful creatures.
I just filled the humming bird feeder this morning, I wonder how long it will be before they discover it...we will see!
Thank you for visiting
