For the Birds
It has become an unfortunate habit that I'm very diligent feeding the birds for months at a time, and then when we run out of seed, many months go by before I start up again. It's not that I don't want to. I look longingly at the empty feeders almost daily. I just let it fall to the bottom of the priority list.
So today, a new finch feeder to replace the one ruined in last summer's storm, a large bag of birdseed, and a new pack of suet have been lovingly
set out in the yard. This blog has been motivating me to keep up with the "likes" I have left behind, so I hope to at least keep feeding the birds through the winter. I can't keep upsetting the elder birds, otherwise they'll probably start eating up all the springtime vegetable seeds in the garden just to spite me.
