Any other backyard bird people here? Since I’ve been out on medical leave, one of my favorite things to do has been feeding and watching the wild birds in our yard. It’s good for those days of being stuck on the couch recuperating – gives me something to watch.
For bird fans:
– what kind of food do you feed? I do a mix of suet blocks and compressed seed and pellets, and a small general mix seed feeder. I’m wondering if I should mix it up a bit to attract different kinds?
– what kind of birds visit your yard? I’ve seen robins, red wing blackbirds, starlings and a bird with a black body and dark emerald green head and a few chickadees.
– do you feed any other creatures? I’ve started putting out corn cobs for the deer. Since I did this, they started leaving my feeders alone!
I’ll try to drag out the dslr and telephoto lens and capture some pictures of my feathered friends.
