Male Cardinal on Deck

Over the winter I put out sunflower seeds for the birds. The ground feeders often have a hard time finding food in the winter. Feeding them also gives you a better chance of them returning in the spring to raise their families.

That is precisely what happened in my yard this year. The problem I had was the robins and others ran off the bluebirds. 

So now, with summer ending soon, I have to decide if I will feed the birds. Maybe miss out on seeing the bluebirds again. Have not made up my mind yet.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. what a nice looking cardinal. Here in Florida of course, it doesn’t matter because birds and squirrels and such can be fed all year round. However, what I liked was that in Latvia where everything was ice and snow in the winter people would hang bits of salted bacon on hooks and hang them outside their windows and the birds that stayed all year would come to peck at it. The salted bacon did not freeze.
