SWEET WINTER BIRDS

My friends and I joke about feeding the
birds.  I remember years back how all
the "older folks" fed the birds and now 
here I am doing the same.  


Yesterday I walked over to the Bonnie View
Nature Sanctuary and was going to take some
photos of the birds.  However,  the restrooms
were locked for the winter so I cut my visit
short since I was planning to be there for 
a while and then walk back home.



Today, our state is getting a snowstorm.
I especially enjoy my finch feeder because
I love the yellow goldfinches.  I didn't see 
them in Colorado but we possibly didn't
put out the correct thistle seed.  We did have
the red finches (why do they call them purple?)

I just refilled the feeder so it's
time to warm up with tea.

I think that I need that tea! ☺️ Yes, I am tempted to feed the birds also now that I am old, except I don’t want to attract the squirrels. They, the squirrels, are taking over the world.

That's a nice bird feeder. It's good to keep out the squirrels. Wishing you a good year Bernideen and I'm anxious to see your Summer Garden. Take care. Thelma.

I loved seeing the yellow finches, Bernideen! How I enjoyed the Comfort and Joy tea this season. I will be buying it again next year for sure.

It must be nice to live within walking distance of that Nature Sanctuary. We get some goldfinches and purple finches too this time of year. I was told years ago that if they know they can get food, they will stay the winter so we always make sure the seed is there for them. I don't understand why the purple finches are called 'purple' either because they are red! They are so pretty to watch especially this time of year.

Bernideen, I guess if we are old enough to watch birds then we need the bathrooms to be open!! You get beautiful winter birds there..Happy Wednesday..Judy
