Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

New Red Bird Feeder...Quite the Hit~

The new red feeder is quite the new hit with the little songbirds!

The first to visit was the Carolina Wren...it is just about the first to rise every morning anyway, so this was not a total surprise to me.







Next came the Purple Finches, both female and male, though the male was on my side of the feeder.


A Tufted Titmouse also made a quick appearance.





 The Purple Finch and the American Goldfinch sort of had a stare off, before the Goldfinch was "allowed" to partake of the seed as well.




And...everyone was made happy, including me.  Have a Happy and safe weekend~

  1. Oh I wish I would see some wrens! Have many finches, titmoouses, robins, chicadees, nuthatches, hummingbirds and even hawks. But never those pretty little wrens.

  3. Made me happy too Mary. I try to keep red bows around our bird feeders but HH seems to think the birds don't like it. I think HH doesn't like it. LOL We have all those same birds. If you ever get to the city south of you check out the restaurant we visited on Tuesday, if you like fine dining. Mozz's on Market Street. All the cheeses are made on site and it is a Farm to Table participant.

  8. It didn't take you birds long to get used to your new feeder Mary - they already left their marks on it. just love those Purple Finches, so chunky. It's warming up a lot here now Mary with lots of species singing but I haven't seen any carrying nest material just yet. i guess they have to sing and pair up before actually getting married and homemaking!! Have a great weekend.
