Its springtime with alot of rain here in Michigan, I haven't been able to get out much to walk, but i have spent some time getting my flowers ready and my birdfeeders filled, i attached a golf umbrella with a zip tie to my shepards hook to protect the orioles and hummingbird feeders from the rain. i spend alot of time with a book looking out the window at my bird friends. my Oriole's have brought some of their family this year,and the red breasted grosbeaks,and hummingbirds,cardinals and chickadee's, woodpeckers and so on. but today i was blessed with the small glimpse of an Indigo Bunting. this lil blue bird is rare and just stops for about 5 minutes on its way to canada for the summer.
anyway i positioned myself in the window hoping he would return and i watched all the action at the feeders. the Oriole's getting the grape jam i put out 4 x's a day(they love that stuff). the chickadee's at the peanut butter stick, the cardinals at the birdola full of raisins ,apples,nuts,honey and seeds. a red headed woodpecker at the suet full of corn meal and fat, and the grosbeaks at the sunflower oil seeds.then flies in the hummingbird at the sugar feeder..and i think wow!! Is this what they mean when they say eat like a bird?..lol..
