Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Snack.
From dawn to dusk these creatures eat like birds.
Wait a minute! They are birds.
This homeowner has chosen to supplement the natural diet of several feathered species through the winter months. The feeders hang like ornaments in the bare tree, giving a flash of color to the dreary landscape.
Flying requires lots of calories. Staying warm in cold air requires even more.
So don’t copy their eating habits. Do enjoy watching their flights from one snack to the next. With luck, the correct feeder, and careful placement, you’ll have a circus outside and frustrated squirrels gazing at — rather than stealing from — your feeder.
