Cold Feet

This morning I swept the top of the fence surrounding the decking so that the birds could reach the food without getting cold feet. However most of them decided that the patches of snow were better to stand in than the cleared areas.

The garden birds are eating seeds, nuts and fat in huge amounts but in return they are providing me with endless photo opportunities.
I will definitely be painting birds in the near future.

As long as your feeders aren't metal where they are standing, they'll be OK. I've gotten a Bewick's Wren visiting me this winter. He wasn't here last winter and is enjoying my homemade suet along with the peanut pieces. If you'd like to see a photo of him I just took, go to:
