We’ve been pretty popular with the birds these days. They just flock to the deck like crazy, wild animals…ok, you know what I mean. Lately, we get dozens of the little critters every day…and all because I bought the wrong seeds. You see, I was in a hurry at the store and grabbed the first bag I found that said, “Bird Seed,” and bought it. But when I got home, I found the bag totally filled with black shelled sunflower seeds.
To my surprise, a whole different bunch of birds come around now. Normally, we have Starlings and Robins–that don’t want seeds anyway…they want my strawberries–and sparrows and finches–and an occasional dove or two.
But now–we’ve got very bold quail and blue jays coming right up to the windows to squawk when the feeder is empty..which is actually kinda scary, so we keep it full.
Ahhh…communing with nature.
and getting snubbed when the black seeds run out.
