I previously mentioned that I am a backyard birdwatcher. In doing so for many years, I have found myself “claiming” certain birds- I’ll say to my husband “My blue jay is back” or “My finches have made a nest in the bird box”. Well, today my woodpecker is back! He must have been lured back by the suet and corn I put out last week.
I have five bird feeders- some filled with corn, some with mixed seeds, 2 suet feeders and one platform feeder- right now it has cantaloupe seeds and pulp in it. I must go out and fill the bird bath with warm water.
