One of the things I got in town Tuesday that I couldn't remember was a bird feeder. I found a reasonably priced bird feeder that isn't one of those ones with the wire all around it that small seed falls out of too easily. This one is a little plastic bird house type thing with a little wooden roof, a removable plastic tray with two little compartments in it, and a little perch in front of the tray for the birds to go on. And it hangs up. It's not very big, but it's big enough for a couple of birds to eat at once. It was only about £2 (a little under $4) and since I was only making a bird table because of the couple of birds who seem reluctant to eat off the ground, I decided to get it for them. It'll save me the job of making a bird table. LOL!
The birds seem to aprove of it anyway.
There was a new bird in the garden... "A big brown and white thing" Kelly said it was. But I didn't get the camera to him in time for him to get a photo of it. We now have the camera in the kitchen so we can - in theory - have more chance of getting to it in time.
Mr Blackbird (the Blackbird from previous bird related posts) was wandering around the garden with a couple of Chaffinches the other day, but Kelly was too busy to get a photo. If he'd not been busy he could even have switched the video mode on the camera and got a video of it for you. But he was busy, and by the time he wasn't they'd gone. :(
The birds aren't so nervous of people coming in to the garden now. Some are, but many of them still stay around... I expect it's because I've been feeding them. Anyway, Mam says that when she starts coming to stay the weekend again she'll try and get some photos and videos for me to share. Not sure when that'll happen though.
OK, that'll do for today, I think... Enjoy whatever's left of your day! :)
