Too Many Birds

I don’t think this picture really captures the chaos outside my window every morning. It calms down after an hour, thankfully. But there were many more birds around off to all the sides when I took this shot, all dive bombing the feeder. Oh dear, they’re back. Honestly, I have very mixed feelings about having this feeder. I would feel differently if I felt rich!

  1. Hi Stacy,
    You need to get a song bird feeder from a specialty catalogue. They have squirrel/pigeon baffels to keep the pigeons off. I just saw a gorgeous blue jay on my fire escape today. I have seen wood peckers and Malik once saw a hawk.
    I have to tell you the pigeon story when I see you.
    Please e-mail or come by I woudl like to talk to about an idea. Maybe I’ll see you on the roof getting wish on a star.

  2. Hi Beth!! Oh god, I heard your pigeon story! Thank god for people like you, but what a story that was. It gave me anxiety attacks just hearing it. (Beth and her son rescued a pigeon in distress.)
