Cool Window Bird Feeder

WELCOME to my new Follower - Life with Luci and Loree!  Thanks for joining me in my Blog, I hope we meet up during our travels with our dogs some day.

A couple of months ago I clicked on one of the "Ads by Google" that looked interesting on one of the blogs I was reading, and ended up buying a Wild Bird Feeder that I thought would be great when I'm traveling in my RV.  Well, actually when I'm parked with my RV.  I've been trying to get a photo with a bird in it but haven't gotten any good shots.  It has suction cups to hold it on a window, and you can watch the birds from inside your house (or RV).

I put it on my patio window and it's so much fun to watch the birds!  My birds are all pretty plain little critters so far, but there were two that were coming around briefly that were a beautiful yellow - I think yellow cardinals?  Something like that.  Anyway, I'm tired of trying to get a GOOD photo, so am settling for these two:

If you click on the second one, you'll see more detail.  He's looking out the opening - probably ready to scare off any intruders.

Pretty lousy photos, but every time I started near the window, they flew off.  But you get the idea.

When I put the bird seed out, I felt bad that only one bird at a time could eat, so I put seed in one of the planters I have hanging on my low fence, and some doves come by and sit in it to eat. Usually there are two, one sits in the bottom ( the planter is empty) and eats, and the other guards.  They are such pretty birds I love it when the doves come by.
This photo is taken from my couch, with the Zoom lens - through the screen door.  Not super clear, but again, if you click on it, you can see them better.  This guy above is standing guard for his mate - you can barely see her head behind him.
Here they are just sitting, enjoying the view.  Sorry they are such poor quality, but I love my doves!

The only problem with this whole thing, of course, is all the birdseed on the patio.  What a mess!  And Katie tries to eat the seeds, too.  Hasn't hurt her yet, so I guess it's okay.  The seeds are only from the feeder on the window, though, and it is pretty small.  One of the reasons I put seed in the planters is all the cracked seed shells stay in the planter.  I just keep adding more seeds on top of the empty shells. 

That's it for now.  Have a good evening, everyone!


  1. Just found your blog and we too are waiting to go fulltime, in our case we are trying to sell the house, since we already have a truck & 5 thwheel that are paid for. We are also Doggie people, we have a 1 1/2 yera old black Lab Male named Rigg's who will make life more than interesting at times,he is a big dog right near a hundred pounds and still like a puppy, People say how will he be in a camper,well he did just great on a two week vacation and trips Sam has taken to our campground at the Lake. There are several doggie blogsites on my list of followers at our site, Stop by and check them out also go back and look at the pictures Of Jodie & Coco's visit, and the pups their parents are raising. Hope you find the rig of your dreams and that we will meet up one day. Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.

  2. I love that feeder. I have a Hummingbird feeder that attaches to the window. It is neat too.

  3. I love that window bird feeder. We have several hummer feeders that suction on our r v window, but none for other birds.
    Birds are not easy to photograph, please don't apologize for your pics. Just enjoy the birds and as they get more relaxed you will get different pics.
    We love watching and feeding the birds.
    Take care and enjoy birding.
    Mike & Gerri

  4. That bird in the feeder looks like a house finch to me. :)

  5. You can get Hulled sunflower seeds that the birds eat 100% They are a little more expensive, but most birds love them and you don't have all the seed mess below.

    If you buy cheap mixed seed, the birds just throw out what they don't like anyway.

    I took my feeder down this year because we are painting and I don't want any more bird droppings on the deck rail.


Thank you for your comments - we LOVE them!
