Five Minutes of Pictures of Our Bird Feeder
Our thirty years of feeding the birds year round have never been as good as what we are experiencing now! I took these 4 pictures this morning over a span of 5 minutes just to show you a sample of the kinds of birds we are attracting with Scotts Songbird Selections NutriThrive Wild Bird Food.
Here is a list of some of the birds we have seen at our feeder over the past several days: Purple Finch, Gold Finch, White-Breasted Nuthatch, Red-Breasted Nuthatch, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Chickadee, Titmice, Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, Blue Grosbeak, Indigo Bunting, Cardinal, and Wren. We even get a pair of Mourning Doves who somehow squeeze themselves onto this small feeder several times a day.
One of the keys is we feed birds at this feeder year round. We have a bird bath nearby. The nearby trees are a great staging area for birds waiting their turn to feed. This feeder is hanging from the overhang two feet in front of the window at our kitchen sink where the squirrels can’t reach. (The squirrels do get to enjoy what happens to fall to the ground.) Since the birds are so used to coming to this feeder, they do not seem to mind that we are watching them from just a few feet away.
I think this is the best bird food blend we have ever tried (and over the years we have spent a ton of money trying them all).
