I wrote about a new winter bird feeding station for a Lowe's Creative Ideas project. Since we had snow in the forecast, I went outside yesterday and replaced some of the food on the tree. It had been warm and rainy and some of the homemade suet had started molding and smelled sour. I added more suet dipped pine cones and a few lights and ornaments to the tree. I also washed the tiny clay pots and put plain peanut butter in them.
Usually when it snows the birds gather at my feeders in large numbers and I wanted the tree to be ready for them!
|It is beautiful flocked with snow!|
|The woodpecker landed on the back side of the tree and was also difficult to capture. I'm hoping once he is comfortable landing on the tree that he will venture to the front side!|
The robins were in the yard in large numbers devouring the berries from the Bradford and Cleveland pear trees.
And I wanted to wish you all a belated...
I hope that you were all blessed to be with those you love!
Also a huge thank you to Shirley from Shirls Garden Watch blog for mentioning Robin's Nesting Place on her blog! Shirl and I both have a fondness and fascination for the birds!
