Winter is a great time to watch birds at the feeder. Last year I got fed up with the squirrels eating all the food and stopped putting seed in the feeder. This year I found a great one that is squirrel proof and the birds and I are very happy with it! We’ve had so many and have had fun learning what type of birds they are and in doing so, have learned so much in general about them: habitat, migrating patterns, male vs. female coloring, etc. This week we had the huge tree outside my kitchen window removed as it was old and rotting. I hope the birds still come and visit!
