Bird Watching

bird watching

For two weeks our little seed bell didn’t get any traffic at all. Not one single bird came to visit. When I complained to my mom about it, she suggested that perhaps we had hung it too far out in the open. Maybe the birds weren’t interested because they’d be too visible to hawks and other predators, and if we moved it further under the balcony’s overhang, we might get more traffic.

So we moved it. And within fifteen minutes there were two little birds chomping away. And pooping away. That’s the side of a bird feeder I hadn’t counted on: The bird poop side. But it’s totally worth it. I think.

Also, it’s excellent entertainment for the cats.
