I am so pleased to report that the squirrels have still not figured out a way to get to the birdfeeder I hung up earlier this year. For a while there, I thought that having a squirrel free birdfeeder was an impossible dream but I am here to tell you that it can be done.
So without the squirrels eating us out of house and home, we have gotten a nice array of birds back to the feeder and in our yard. But I have to admit that I bang on the window whenever I see a blue jay on the feeder. They can wipe the food out almost as quickly as a squirrel can and the other birds don’t seem to want to be in the same neighborhood as they are.
Yesterday I put the long lens on my camera and took a few shots of our visitors. Here they are:
|Grackle. He is the king of all he surveys. And yes, we still haven't taken down those blasted Christmas lights that don't work.|
|The American Robin.|
|The lovely female Cardinal.|
|Mr. Goldfinch almost has all his summer clothing on.|
|The Juncos are still here.|
