New bird feeders! When the chickadees are so fluffy they look like little baseballs, it is time to put the bird food out again to help keep their internal furnaces burning. Our old feeder had weathered beyond repair, so my husband bought a couple new ones. They look pretty cheery.
We have had them out for a couple weeks now, and they have been visited by blue jays, doves, woodpeckers, redpolls, chickadees, and of course, sparrows and squirrels. I really enjoy sitting at the kitchen table and watching them come and go.
