Getting Ready for the Trick-or-Treaters

Last week we started to notice that more birds were coming around to our tiny birdfeeder. My mum noticed that some Cardinals and Dark-Eyed Juncos had joined the flock of Chickadees residing in our backyard. Now we have a larger feeder set up in front of the kitchen window. We staked it in a large planter because this spot in the yard is on the pavement driveway. We also added some berries and branches in the pot to add some colour for the white winter and more perches to take turns near the food.

So far the Chickadees have been hoarding all of the peanuts and tucking them into the cracks of the fence, the Juncos eat everything that is tossed onto the ground and the squirrels are getting frustrated. There isn’t much daylight left after work, but I hope to get some photographs of them on a brighter day this weekend.

Are you ready for the birds yet? Check out this link on Pinterest for some cool DIY birdfeeder ideas.

  1. I wish I had a birdfeeder! I am on the 4th floor, so no birds come up here. 😦 I have some local feeders that I visit regularly in the winter, though. I just love watching the cardinals, chickadees, and we also have towhees and white throated sparrows. πŸ™‚
