Bird Feeders and Sleeping Birds
Yesterday I started feeding the birds again after the feral cat took the cardinal a few weeks ago. Rumors have it that the cat was seen about a mile + away from my house. I hope it lost some interested with my empty feeder and gets lost in the deep woods. I will keep my eye open for any cat tracks and if found again, I will stop feeding for a second time. I enjoyed seeing my feathered friends again during my lunch break. I was amazed that chickadees returned within minutes of placing the feeder back in its spot on the tree.
This morning I had an unusual find in my window feeder at the office. If you remember the discussion from last month when I talked about sleeping birds at night; well I found a songbirds roost! In this picture below you will see this circle spot where the bird’s body heat melted the snow in the corner of the window. It obviously had its head facing the corner of the window due to the heaps of scat on the outside of the circle. You can also see a feather laying there after it probably preened its feathers in the morning. The bird was gone once I made it to work but I was extremely excited to find something to share with my blogging friends. Hope everyone enjoys the weekend.
