My Feathered Friends

Image result for blue jay eating corn

I enjoy watching the birds that visit my garden.  Yes, I have a pair of binoculars or two, and yes I own several bird guides- I guess that makes me a birdwatcher.

My particular favourite bird this year has been a blue jay who visits irregularly.  He is big, noisy, and thrashes about in small bushes as if he were a whirlwind.  He makes a beautiful entrance.

In order to tempt him to visit more often, I filled all my bird feeders today- mixed seeds in one, corn in several and cakes of suet placed in their holders.  Alas, the water in the birdbath was frozen solid.  Tomorrow I will empty the tea kettle into it after breakfast!
