April Shower of Photos : : Day 25

April Shower of Photos
Day 25

As Peter Sellers would say, we filled up our "Birdie Num Num" feeders today... (grin)

We have had pesky black grackle issues here, birds who are relentless and hog our bird feeders. We were told in order to rid ourselves of them, we should revert to primarily using white seed, so all eight feeders were filled with ONLY white seed today.

It's strange to see the pecking order of the birds flocking nearby; the morning doves, the red winged blackbirds, robins, and even the Northern Cardinals fighting for a place on a feeder bar to nibble awhile.

But, those darned grackles have all but scared away all the wee birdies we love so much. Hope this works!

Our little birdie oasis, at least a bit of it is shown here. Just look at how much our willow tree has grown on the right side of these pictures! It's now taller than our maple tree nearby. Wowza!
