Feed the Birds

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

Cardinal, male *

Chickadees *


Dark-eyed Junco *

Downy & Hairy Woodpeckers *

Flicker *


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 SquirrelEastern 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.
