Default Re: Around the house lately

Paul, we do have a wide variety of birds here year round. Apparently I'm the only one for miles around that feed them daily. I quit feeding "wild bird seed: because most of it is cheap seeds that few birds will eat. Seems half of it is sugar cane seed & few birds will eat it. Cane is used to fill half a 50 pound bag & then the companies put in a mixture of "bird food." What the birds won't eat grows & becomes weeds in your lawn. We don't have many waterfoul type birds but we don't have ponds around the house. Local farms have livestock watering ponds & geese & ducks use them. After I cut all the big water maples in the yard down, we no longer have the horned owls. Haven't heard the little screech owls in years either. Junco's only show up around the first of December & bail out in early spring heading north again. ......I got a kick out of the pair of mockingbirds today terrorizing the blackbirds & bluejays over the suet blocks. They put on a show attacking anything interfering with their feeding babies suet. One of the most nimble & acrobatic birds I know of. Much like a roadrunner battling a snake. ......Paul H
