Our new bird feeder

When we got the squirrel corn the other day we also bought a bird feeder. So far we have not actually seen any feathered friends at the feeder, but the drop in the seed level and loose seeds on the ground under the feeder do show that it has been used.

Speaking of birds, there is a Pileated Woodpecker living somewhere around our neighborhood. We have seen him a couple of times flying through. What a magnificent bird. We’re looking forward to more sightings.

Since we’re not traveling Sher and I have focused on getting our backyard into a more comfortable and enjoyable living space. BC (before coronavirus) we were traveling for much of the year. Thanks to COVID-19 that has changed drastically.

Got any bird feeders in your yard? What is your favorite bird?

Remember all that “stay healthy” advice! Don’t slip up!

  1. If that feeder was full some hungry critters have had a good go at it. We have downy woodpeckers. They are little birds that make a whole lot of noise. We also have Flickers, but I haven’t seen them yet.

  2. I see a lot of red-winged blackbirds, sparrows, common grackles, robins in my neighbourhood at this time of the year. Do you have hummingbirds in your area? They’ll love your bird feeder.


    • There are hummingbirds around, and our next plan is to build a hummingbird feeder. I have never seen a Redwing in our yard. They are wonderful birds. Wish we had some. Thanks for the visit and the comment!


    • Oh yes, Derrick, I have been following the continuing “Saga of Nugget”. I know it is just a matter of timing when we will see birds at our feeder. They’ve been there, we can tell, just not when we’ve looked.

  3. Cool bird feeder. I’ve never thought about a favorite bird before but …. I guess it’s albatross.

    Anyway, it’s the first time I read “BC.” Do you mind if I use the abbreviation later? πŸ˜€

  4. On a visit to Oregon, I remember falling in love with the way brown pelicans flew overhead. Back home in the UK, I feel a similar tingle about the flight of herons. Something about the rhythm of their wingbeats.

    I have a feeder I am hoping to be able to start filling again quite shortly. Circumstances got in the way for a while. Doubtless the local magpies will try to make it their own again.


  5. God you’re lucky to have woodpeckers! I’d love to see them round here. Used to have feeders around the garden, full of peanuts, which attracted red squirrels as well as birds, but we took them down long ago because the cats were taking advantage! Love cats but love birds and squirrels too!
