Birds around our place today:
Heard but not seen: whippoorwill and screech owl.
And thank goodness, the snowbirds have left! Which means we might be out of danger of freezes now.
It gets pretty noisy around here sometimes, especially if you add in the chickens. We have been feeding year-round and see a decided increase in the number of birds on our property. We feed black sunflower seeds, thistle seed for the finches, and suet cakes for the woodpeckers. The bird bill is not quite as high as the cat food bill but getting close. But we get such pleasure from seeing and hearing them, it's worth every penny.
Now, waiting on the hummingbirds. They should arrive within the week, since I hear they are already in southwestern Virginia. We'll be putting out the feeders tomorrow.
