I’ve been feeding the birds outside my kitchen window. I put out some suet cakes to get started. Since the beginning of January, I’ve seen
Blue Jay – mostly interested in sunflower seed – corn mixture, on the ground
Goldfinch – finally put out some thistle seed
Mourning Dove – when there was corn + seed on the ground
*these others were after the commercial suet cakes
Plus hundreds of squirrels. The Fox Squirrel, Eastern Grey Squirrel and American Red Squirrel can all be seen here. They will eat up all of your birdfood. Squirrels can be very interesting. Look for a post about them later.
