For the Birds

The birds are really liking the suet feeder my mom gave me. I was standing less than 10 feet away from it and this little guy was not going to be scared away from the food!
Today was a pretty busy day, so substituting a picture from yesterday in it's place. Normal morning routine followed by registering my 2nd for Kindergarten this fall, making doctor appointments for the younger 2 for their immunizations, quick naps, to the babysitter and banquet, and then late getting home.
funny how food captivated even the birds : )

I bought one of the bell type feeders and hung up here, but there aren't too many birds taking turns on it. Was thinking about getting a suet feeder like that one instead. Cool shot of your little feathered friend!

What a lovely picture! Why are you lamenting not having squirrels close up when you've got beautiful birds posing for you! Do the squirrels ever try to get the food from the feeder? I recall (Bruni, I think) had a squirrel dangling by its hind feet off of the feeder. Maybe you need to rethink or add a new feeder and you're likely to attract all the squirrels you'd want to photograph!

I have another regular seed feeder on another branch in the same tree that has been frequented by our big chubby squirrel. He actually chewed thru a couple of the plastic "poles" where the birds would sit so that he could access the seed easier. He likes to hang from his back feet and eat away!
