bird feeding

In fact, this isn't a particularly functional bird feeder - it's an old dish hanging in a tree that we employed last summer to try and tempt bluebirds to come and feed mealy worm grubs to their young - young that never showed the slightest bit of interest in said grubs.  All the same, we - I mean - they - reared at least two families, and possibly three.  I say "possibly three," because although we only saw two, there was another nest in the birdhouse when I came to inspect it yesterday - and I know I cleared the last one out.  Today - war restocked the main bird feeder, and the water bowls, and bought two separate kind of suety seedy things for the wire holder, and are now sitting back to see who turns up.


  1. Buying a stainless steel bird cage from the start is certainly going to be less costly compared to replacing the parrot cage a number of times. In the event that perhaps the stainless steel is not actually a good possibility right at this time, check out the beautiful wrought iron bird parrot cages or several other sorts of all mmetal bird cage.

  2. I so love it when a comment - clearly a spam effort - has a quirky and surreal effect ...
