We have several birdfeeders in our yard, and have begun to fill them . We haven’t had a lot of really cold weather in November, in fact, have continued to see temperatures in the high 60’s and even 70’s. But winter must come, even to Georgia. I try to add variety, with mixed seed in one feeder, sunflower seed in one, and a couple of suet feeders. This way I can attract a variety of birds.
Last year we received over seven inches of snow during a late winter storm.
I was out checking on my bees yesterday, and notice an old chair that I had left in the woods, with plans to use as a planter last year. It had remained hidden in the grown up brush, which had now died back.
I didn’t have anything to plant in it this time of year, but it would make a perfect feeder for a Bird Café.
The bottom of a terra cotta pot would serve as a try to serve up a variety of treats for the bird.
Apple pieces, raisins, nuts, bread, and sunflower seeds were added.
My zinnias have continued to bloom, and have flourished in the cooler weather this fall. We had such a hot, dry summer, they had dried up, and I was ready to pull them up. I’m glad I left them at this split rail fence.
Be sure and get your feeders ready for this winter. The birds will thank you for it.
