Seed buffet and cardinal take-over
On this icy/rainy morning, I had time (school was two hours late) to put out seeds for my resident birds. When I looked out the window about 5 minutes later, I counted at least 15 cardinals! You can see two males and two females on this platform feeder Dan set up for them. Two others were inside the tunnel. I place black oil sunflower seed (their favorite) along the beams of the old monkey bars and swing frame. All of the other pictures I took showed lots of blurring because birds are rarely still, so you only get a taste of my view here. Chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, sparrows, juncos, and various woodpeckers are also regular visitors, but these beautiful cardinals are my favorite.
