Feeding the Birds

I’ve always wanted a nice looking bird feeder, and for Christmas we received this lovely cedar one. There’s nothing prettier than a white snowy winter landscape dotted with brightly colored birds like blue jays, cardinals, finches, etc. It will make the future snowstorms more bearable (since I’m totally sick of snow after the ridiculous amounts we had last winter and our October storm).

We already had this hook off the side of the garage from the previous owner, so we decided to hang it here for now. I might move it around if the seed gets too messy, but this works for now - it's nice to have it up!


  1. Watch out - you're adding a food source next to a cozy potential home (the garage) for mice and chipmunks! You might want to consider moving your bird feeder to the back of your lot - away from the garage and house!

  2. What a nice bird feeder! It looks like it's heavy! -Gillian

  3. That's good advice, thanks! I think we're going to see if we can find a Shepard's hook so we can hang it up away from the garage.
