We've had an increase in bird activity lately. I'm not sure why because we haven't changed the food we put out for them. Maybe word is getting out that this is the place to be...plenty of food, water and houses! These were all taken the same day! I hope you enjoy seeing some of the wildlife in our cottage garden!
Red-winged Blackbirds and a few Grackles.
Cardinals and lots of Goldfinches.
A tree full of male and female Cardinals!! They are all waiting for their turn at the sunflower seed feeders. Notice the small screens we put under the feeders. This way more birds can eat at one time.
A Mockingbird and Sparrows at the suet feeders. We have two Mockingbirds that always seem to be in the yard. In the last couple of weeks they have started getting very protective of the apples and chase away the other birds that try to eat them.
The snow had just begun falling as this Cardinal landed on the pergola. His bright red color really stands out and it appears he's looking right at the camera.
The Mockingbird trying to decide which type of suet to eat! Oh, decisions, decisions!
Look at the ground on the left side of the gate. There are several Doves relaxing.
