Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. Psalm 133: 1
Birds of different breeds
Might share their food stock
Depends on who likes seeds
And who prefers the suet block,
If they eat peacefully together
With friends of another feather..
But it might work in reverse...
I have seen some converse
To each other and other breeds
Speaking as only a bird could talk
If the one who did like seeds
Instead opted for the suet block!
Poetry By me, AJP
The White-throated Sparrows didn't dare go after a bird as big as the Red-bellied Woodpecker but I have seen them attack the Downy Woodpeckers to chase them off the feeder...The Red-bellied Woodpecker didn't pay them any attention....Nature is very interesting to watch the personalities of the different breeds of birds emerge....Birds are highly intelligent but they need to be diligent as well to survive the extreme weather...
The migratory white-throated sparrows might be extra cranky this year because of after traveling many miles only to face 14 inches of deep snow....here on May 2nd. Who could blame them if they get cantankerous now and then?
