Then my step-mother asked for a bird feeder for Christmas. I decided to stop in a store called Wild Birds Unlimited. I was amazed that a store that dealt with nothing but birds could even stay in business. How wrong I was! It was busy the whole time I was there. I walked out of there not only with a bird feeder gift, I had a feeder, bird book and bag of food for myself! I’ve since gone back to buy a bigger feeder and suet cakes to bring the woodpeckers.
Within a couple hours of hanging the feeder, we had birds. We’ve seen Junkos, Chickadees, Cardinals (lots of those), House Finches, Blue Jays, and more.
I love looking out the back window to see which birds are stopping by each day.
