Last year, my bird feeder seemed to always have a tufted titmouse or a cardinal on it. Through the winter, they just sort of disappeared from my yard.
I kept hearing their song taunting me from the woods or my neighbour's trees. :(
We had been using a certain brand of bird feed. I thought they had just changed the bag on us, but I swear they changed the mix on us. The other day I decided to pick up a bag of black oil sunflower seed, to see if that would bring them back.
I'm so happy. Anyone remember the T.V. show 'Perfect Strangers'? I did Balki's 'Dance of Joy' LOL
AND Mr. A said that he spotted a female cardinal on the feeder while I was at work.
The lunch counter was busy with other bird patrons as well. The chickadees were enjoying themselves, and I believe those are female purple finches having a snack...
