Who's Visiting the Bird Feeder?


NOT THIS GUY!

This week I've seen a huge increase in the number and variety of birds visiting the feeder outside my front window. Since I moved it away from the lilac bush, the squirrel hasn't been able to jump onto the feeder and empty it. But there have been plenty of birds:
blue jay
sparrow
junco
purple finch
starling
mourning dove (they eat what drops on the ground)
robin (not at the feeder, but in the yard)

And I've heard the mockingbird singing, but I haven't caught sight of him yet.

Saw your comment on Jean's FB page re: squirrel proof feeders. The ONLY one that is TRULY squirrel proof (and I'm in no way connected to the company...I'm just a garden blogger!) is the Droll Yankee 'Flipper'. It's battery (if kept charged) keeps the squirrels away because even if they do happen to find a way to get on it, they are swiftly thrown off. I have 3 of them. I probably should write to the company and get credit but, I only recommend it because I really like it;-) It's a bit more expensive thought...over $100, but well worth it in my opinion!
