For the Birds
I am having fun attracting birds to my little patio out back. During August and September, I had a plethora of hummingbirds.
Then all of a sudden bees took over the feeder, keeping the hummingbirds at bay. So I removd the feeder until I can figure out how to keep the bees away.
I put up a finch feeder and have been inundated with cheery little house finches.
But that's not all. I have had a verdin visit, several mocking birds (including a cute chubby one),
a chatty gila woodpecker,
a pair of curve-billed thrashers,
and a dark-eyed junco. My cats are fascinated by all the birds on the other side of the glass =)
