winter birdwatching


After weeks of searching for just the right bird feeder to hang outside our dining room, I gave in and made one myself. (Be the change you wish to see in the bird feeder selection, right?) I made over a thrifted birdcage with the help of my trusty Dremel and some Rustoleum. We hung it on Thanksgiving, but the neighborhood birds didn't discover it until yesterday morning when the season's first snowfall brought them out en masse.
   
Pictured: sparrows, starling
Also sighted: northern mockingbird, turtledove

  2. Our indoor kitties love to watch all of the activity at the bird feeder. What a great idea and you don't have to worry about keeping the bees out in the summer.
