Birds and snow

I need to make something clear, ahem...I wanted a big snow...ok we got it now I am done.  I didn't ask for days of snow....

When I am on my computer I can look out my window at our bird feeders.  Now understand that I am so afraid of birds BUT I enjoy watching them after all I am safe in the house.  Anyway we have lots of cardinals that visit and even make their nests in our bushes.  They are so beautiful.  We try to keep food out for them.  Suddenly the black birds have found the new feeding spot.  OMG they are relentless in eating all of the food up.

Picture this, I am on the computer working away and out of the corner of my eye I see a black bird run the cardinals off.  I tap on the window and they fly away for about 3 seconds then they are back.....grrrrrrrr

So I thought I needed to go outside myself to shew the black birds away.  This worked only briefly.  While out I took some photos of the cardinals waiting on the black bird to leave and finally one cardinal braved it and starting eating with him.

That is my story today....birds and snow.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  3. I know exactly how you feel about the snow. I wished for it and boy did we get it. I have a feeder on our back porch so I can watch them at the kitchen table. Quite a few different types of birds visit the feeder, my favorite are the female cardinals, they are so beautiful. I love your pictures. Stay warm!

  4. Cardinals were my refuge in our enormous snowfall, too. And like you, we had standoff between the cardinals and the blackbirds.

    Here's to hoping the snow stops soon!
