Put It Out; They Will Come

A month ago we purchased a new bird feeder. We installed the bird feeder outside our kitchen window. Days passed; no birds. I would ask Bob every day “Have you see any birds at the feeder?” It took a while, but the birds have finally found the feeder. Bob saw a small woodpecker the other day. He took a picture of the woodpecker with his Blackberry to show me that he had seen the woodpecker. This afternoon we saw a nuthatch.

I hope to see more birds in the days to come!

    Nice shot! I probably should put a bird feeder out somewhere, if only to entertain the cats. They do love to see birds outdoors, even if they are not allowed out.We don't get a ton of bird traffic, perhaps because we DO get a ton of neighborhood cat traffic!

    Sometimes it takes a while for the birds the discover feeders. I have nine around my yard and on one it took over 6 months! But like you, I love the birds so I feed them – sunflower seeds, thistle seed and of course the ever present suet. Really nice looking feeder too.

    This is a wonderful picture of your visitor. I'm sure he will spread the word and you will soon have many visitors at your feeder.

    I've always been reading blogs about putting birdfeeders, maybe i should try to do that to. My worry is we have crows roaming so low that they might be depriving the smaller birds from feeding. They normally get low to steal eggs of the native chickens and their chicks. They sometimes even fight with the orioles because they try to get their nestlings or eggs, and the oriles give a very noisy fight. Birdfeeding is not common here, so maybe i will start it.

    It always seems to take them a while to discover the new feeder. That's a great shot of your little nuthatch Linda. I don't get the red-breasted ones around here. May its new home be blessed with many companions.

    Sweet!!! Thinking about a hummingbird feeder next summer – but am afraid they won't come. We don't get many birds in the backyard!
