Wildlife Feeding Stations

Just a quick post before I go off to work.

Because of the harsh winters we’ve had the last couple of years, I’ve begun feeding the birds and squirrels in the yard during the winter. I’ve put them out recently, and the animals are quite pleased. I may leave them up year round just to help them out. I don’t have pictures of the animals and birds using the feeders, and you’ll see why. I plan to video tape these feeders when I get a proper camera.

This bowl holds food for the big birds and the squirrels. Yes, there’s a rock in the water dish. It’s made of very thin plastic and with the winds we’ve been having, it needed help staying in place.

This is a hanging feeder for small birds, and they love it. I have a suet cage for our young woodpecker, but I don’t have a place to hang it yet. The tree it was in was killed during last year’s freeze, and the branches aren’t sturdy enough to hold the weight of the bird. There’s a cheek blue jay who shares the suet too.

Beautiful Mimi out for her morning walk is checking things out before she gets off the porch. The neighbor was mowing their lawn, and she wasn’t sure she wanted to be out in the noise.

She’s a 20 pound cat, to give you an idea of how big she is. 🙂

That’s it for today. I’ll try to get a proper video of the animals when I can.

I also have a opossum and an armadillo sharing the underside of the house with us – it’s a pier and beam house so there’s space beneath it. I won’t be able to get footage of either since they mostly are nocturnal, but I’ll figure something out.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!
