|Early Morning in my Winter Gardens|
We're living in a deep freeze.
The days are frigidly cold and the nights are simply Siberian.
Occasionally the sun peeks through
the gray winter clouds...
my friends in the Tropics ask.
Well, simply said, the plants go dormant...
|Fluffing Keeps Me Warm|
but the birds...
|Little Feet have a Protective Covering... Galoshes?|
oh, those little birds...
|I'm in Love with my Photographer|
When they're not posing for a photo shoot...
to keep those little bodies warm!
Do you feel guilty when your feeders are empty? No guilt needed.
Birds feed mostly on natural foods, and know not to depend on just one source...
even feeders that are always filled.
Researchers found that Chickadees get less than 25% of their energy source from feeders.
Of course, the down side to not keeping your feeders full is that the birds
will take the party to your neighbor's feeders and you'll miss out on all the fun.
If you refrain from deadheading your flowers in the fall,
you'll have plenty of natural food to entice the birds to entertain you.
(Photos taken through my back door window. It's much warmer on this side.)
