I love birds, all kinds of birds, especially those that visit my garden.
The little chickadees live in the evergreens surrounding my home and I’m continually charmed as I listen to their call – chicka-dee-dee-dee. I don’t feed them as they seem to be very good at finding bugs in the trees, but I do provide water year-around.
The even smaller nuthatches call my garden home and also appreciate the birdbath.
I used to feed the chickadees and nuthatches sunflower seeds and suet but I had to stop. The seed would scatter on the ground as would chunks of suet and the little birds would drop down to get it making them subject to this boy.
I do feed the tiniest birds of all to frequent my garden – the Anna’s hummingbirds.
Hummingbirds not only drink nectar from flowers (and sugar water from my feeders) they also eat sap and tiny insects. In fact, they consume half their weight in food each day so be wary if someone tells you that you eat like a bird! 🙂
