I love feeding and watching birds in my back yard. I have numerous feeders like regular feeders, thistle seed feeders, suet cake feeders. I'm the spring and summer I put out grape jelly for the Orioles and a sugar feeder for the Hummingbirds.

I see Woodpeckers, Blue Jay's, Cardinals, Mourning Doves, Finches and numerous other bird types.

I also feed the birds. A huge hawk started coming around wanting to eat the little birds but they went into hiding when he was around. I took several pics of the hawk.

Used to feed them years ago yet discovered it also attracts rodents so out in the trash went the feeder.

Birds still come around just not as many.

I feed mine as well. If i put anything other than black oil sunflower or stripey seed they scratch it out and it ends up on the ground which attracts more doves.

I plant the black oil sunflower and stripey from my feed in the spring... i love to watch them eat direct from the head of the sunflower

Whatever is left from their picking of the sunflower heads i put into the feeder.

I am going to try to grow chicory again.. it grows well beside the highways..and during the summer i always see yellow finches perched in it eating something..

Mum is 97 and pretty much wheelchair bound. She is in a "home" My sibs and I visit her regularly and bring bird seed for her squirrel - proof feeder. She has a TV, but prefers the large screen window with the feeder.

Just took a picture of our feeder yesterday late afternoon. Was wondering why I have gone through so much bird feed in the last week or so. I had just bought 5 more bags of it the day before I saw this.

I grew up watching them. We had a huge windbreak along with honeysuckle bushes. We kept a bird book because often there were birds we did not recognize.

Blue Jays are bossy cusses. I watched a red headed woodpecker once reach around the corner of the feeder a pop a Blue Jay in the butt. Lol

In summer we had several Blue Bird house. Great little bird.

Last April we moved to a house where an older woman had passed away. She had martins. At first we didn't want them but came to love them. They should be back soon. We have a 12 gourd house. I cleaned them and got them ready for their return.

In this area, we have a lot of bald eagles being fed....from deer carcasses that have been hit by cars and trucks. If they are not too picky, they'll also eat road kill raccoons and opossums.
