Really nice, Cathy. Is he in an oleander?
I thought so too Beth. Pretty anxious to finish up and see what comes in! I'll be putting up the wildlife cam too, as soon as the pond is done.
cathy...he even looks looks inquisitive!! water sounds are a great way to attract birds.
Pretty picture Cathy---
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!
the lessers are so pretty Paulette...I haven't had as many goldies as I used to have...hardley any at the feeders this winter. Don't know why....
