We had our first mockingbird this morning.  Hope he was attracted by the sound of water.  The pond was to be finished yesterday but we're a bit behind schedule.  Then, of course, I have new planting, decor...photos...

It can be very costly Priscilla, I agree. We are cutting back significantly, just purchasing black oil seed for now. Lowe's, over the Holdays, closed out their thistle for just $5 for about a 12 lb bag. We stocked up on that to get us through the winter. There will be plenty of thistle in the desert in awhile---so we'll be able to cut back our usage----

The peanuts in the shell are a BIG hit outside today.  I haven't seen many eating them, but I am finding the shells.  They are also eating the shelled ones in the peanut feeder.  No bluebirds as I had hoped though.

Wonderful pictures.  I had to give up feeding birds which I have done for many years as I was getting too many unwanted critters and was costing me a fortune and the birds weren't getting hardly any of the bird food. I do miss feeding the birds big time.....

Thank you Beth--being back in the desert we forget it's winter--79 today, 80 tomorrow---so glad to be out of the cold!

Another absolute gorgeous day here in the desert. We were delighted to have a male and female lesser Goldfinch for quite awhile. Hoping to have new visitors with all this warm weather--
