Wednesday Challenge – For the Birds

I am about to stop feeding my birds for the summer.
The squirrels are eating all the food anyhow.
The hummingbirds will still get their sugar water.

This year I have seen:

Blue Jays
Tufted Titmice
House finches
Mourning Doves
Downy Woodpeckers
Hairy Woodpeckers
Northern Flickers
Red-Bellied Woodpeckers

I feel very lucky to have this many birds come to my yard!

Flying to my home
Feeding and visits welcome
please come back here soon

  1. I can totally feel you paid. Squirrels and Dove can drive you into a padded room. I can tell you I bought a window feeder that attaches by suction cups. If placed strategically the squirrels cannot get to it. I still have to chase off the Doves, but it allows me to still enjoy watching the birds. I can only dream of ever having a humming bird here. Good luck, I hope this may help.

    1. I have thought about one of those feeders except my windows only have those tall single screens. If I take out the screen it is a pain in the butt to put it back in if I want to open the window. I wish I had the kind of window with screens you can put up and down. Perhaps I can strategically find a window that I know I don’t really need to ever open! Thanks for the suggestion!
