audubon society meeting

January 3, 2013
tags: ,

backyard critters remain active all year, as long as food is plentiful.  The seeds, nuts, suet and dried worms in the feeders appeal to wide variety of our fellow audubon society members.




in winter, we tend to see more raptors than we do in the warmer months, and this fellow has been visiting the yard of late.



all I can say about that is YIKES!

sending warm wishes for the year ahead – new pages of the calendar in which to fill with gestures of love toward others.

    Oh Diane, what a delightful and heart-warming post!!!

    LOVE the photo collage! OMG…that cardinal is so BRIGHT! And of course (being a huge squirrel lover) I smiled wide when I saw that cute little critter!

    And WOW…that raptor is amazing!

    Sharing warm wishes and love with you and Cristybella!

    X and hugs!

    Darn sharpshins are happening here, too.
    He is NOT welcomed– *sigh*
    I feel like I’m inviting birdies to their death every time we fill our feeders.

    I’ve talked with the squirrels and invited them to chase him away–but they just look at me and blink.

    Oh, but ain’t it fun birdie watching?!

      hi Mel, truth is I don’t know enough about these birds to identify them. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there are plenty of mice and rats to keep them satisfied. But I know what you mean about inviting the 2nd tier diners to the buffet. Especially since we’ve been watching some of these birdies since they were born this past spring. A lot of the cardinal families appear to stay together for a while, which has been great fun for the spectator gallery 🙂 xoxo
