It seems that the lack of indoor pets has led to a bit of an obsession in attracting some outdoor ones. Today, I got four new specialty bird feeders– an oriole feeder (they apparently like oranges and grape jelly), two for nuthatches and woodpeckers (a peanut ball and a twig with holes for peanut butter), and a hummingbird feeder. After a very terrifying bit on the ladder, they are all hung up and ready for guests. So far, I haven’t noticed any action on the new ones but hopefully some more varieties will soon call my yard home! In the meantime, here’s some of my feathered friends amongst the spring bokeh. Much more colorful than the last time I posted shots of them.
