Snowy Lunch

This little guy was walking around the cage kicking the snow out to get to the seeds underneath.

Magical picture! I love the cage/bird feeder.

What a precious capture! The bird is posed in the perfect place, with none of the bars blocking the view of its face. Love all the falling snowflakes you captured as well.

LOVE! I love this photo in every way and I covet that bird feeder cage. I love how all the elements come together in this scene. Beautiful.

Joanne -- where did you get this bird cage and how can I find one?

@jyokota I got mine at Winners/Homesense which I think is owned by the same company as your TJ Maxx. I’ve had it for several years now. I originally planned to put a potted plant in it but then got the idea to see if the birds would go in for seeds. I found a metal plate that just fit inside to put the seeds on. I can take the plate out to wash if it gets too grungy. The only problem I see with the one you linked is that it has a raised edge around the bottom. I think the birds usually start by reaching in from the edge to get seeds then, gradually get tempted to go in further to reach more and eventually go right in. I’m not sure if that raised edge would make it harder for them. If you have squirrels around they will almost certainly find a way to get in or at least get the seeds out. They are cunning and determined little devils.

@gardencat -- thanks for the feedback, I'll keep looking online since going shopping is not an option even though I live very close to a TJ Maxx!

@jyokota I’ll try to check tomorrow and measure how far apart the bars are on mine as I think that is important as to if they will go in or not.

@gardencat -- thanks, I really really love how you captured the snow, the colors that all come together so nicely here, etc.

You have snow! I think this is the first snowy photo I’ve seen this year unless I’ve missed one. A lovely capture. I love your bird feeder.

@jyokota I checked today and the openings between the bars are about 1 1/2 inches if that helps you find one that works.

@gardencat --
thank you! I have a bird feeder that's shaped a bit like a cage, and smaller birds get inside to eat. But this morning I found one of the baby squirrels INSIDE! Must go measure my current cage, too. http://365project.org/jyokota/365/2020-06-11
