We Need A Lot Of Bird Seed !

Our Bird Feeders have been "High Traffic Zones" lately -- Goldfinches, RedWing Blackbirds, Cowbirds, Robins, Doves, Purple Finches, Titmouses, Cardinals, Chickadees, and many other birds.
Because it is chilly and damp today (our area is experiencing a cold snap, which is our Dogwood Winter ), we are going to do our Nature Study "a la window" ... watching various birds visit our birdfeeders and journaling about them.
No wonder we go through soooo much Bird Seed every month ! It's a pricey "habit", but we really really enjoy it. Birdseed is considered a "school supply". HA !

We are in the same boat with bridseed....we have just about run through our stock every week instead of every three weeks. Lots and lots of birds everyday now and I am always amazed with the amount they eat!

We must live in pretty much the same climate zone.....we have a saying around here, "It has to snow on the dogwood." Spring isn't considered spring until the dogwood is blooming and we have a dusting of snow. Hasn't happened yet. :)
