There has been such drama out at the bird feeder, I can’t even tell you. But look! A bird is there! Birds come to it now, and it is so wonderful. This photo was snapped last night. It is not a good photo, but I didn't want to get too close and scare my new little pal away.
Astute readers will notice that this bird feeder is very different from the stupid cage-like one I had before.
Yes, stupid. People pointed out that it looked like a cage, and really, it made me a bit uncomfortable, but I was advised to get a squirrel-proof feeder, because if squirrels adopt the bird feeder as their feeding station, birds will never come to it.
Then the unthinkable happened. A little brown bird got trapped in there! He got right out, but it FREAKED me out.
Then this little red headed bird came by (just like the one at the square feeder, above), and this little guy couldn’t even figure out how to get IN to the bird feeder after many attempts. (Please don't think this reflects at all on you, KB.) But I thought, if this red headed bird ever does figure out how to get in, he will NEVER get out. So I climbed out there and just took the damn thing down.
So I didn’t have a feeder for a couple weeks, in case you were wondering about my radio silence on the matter. But then this week then I got this glorious one. What I also like about it is that it doesn’t discriminate against bigger birds. A giant crow could come to this feeder if it wanted. I sort of like crows.
This is a totally boring blog entry. Like, am I 92 years old? I’m going to stop now.
