When we got back from that walk, I put out my bird feeders, the seeds and hummer feeders. We already have a hummer that keeps coming by, but he's fast! Not a particularly pretty guy, pretty much brown, unless maybe the sunshine will bring out more colors. I haven't been able to get a picture yet.
This morning I heard a tussle coming from the tree where I hung the seed bird feeder. There were a couple of Blue Jays and three Black-headed Grosbeaks on the various branches chirping away. They finally flew away. Venita said at her feeders there's one Grosbeak that rules - if any other birds come by, he scares them away. This is the one left in my tree when the rest flew away, but I didn't see anyone getting seeds from the feeder.
I also put up the little finch feeder, but I don't think there are any birds in the forest that will try it out. The only place it worked was in the Distant Drums RV Resort. They had lots of finches and that's where I bought this feeder. I keep trying it in other places, but so far, no takers.
Lots of rain and thunder yesterday. So far this morning it's been cloudy and cool, perfect. The sun pops out once in a while. I really like this weather, and I don't have to feel guilty loving the thunder and lightning as long as there's rain with it. Just in case lightening strikes and starts a fire, hopefully the rain will put it right out.
From me and Katie, have a great Sunday, everyone! :)
