A Red Bellied Woodpecker comes to the feeder every day to enjoy the food and also provides a wonderful opportunity to watch a wild bird close up. He joins other birds and squirrels who compete for food both during the winter and sumer time. To gather food to help them to keep living as well as to feed their young. It truly is a Blessing to Feed the Birds. I go to the local feed store and buy a 50 pound sack of black oil sunflower seeds and a 50 pound sack of scratch grain and mix 3 coffee cans of scratch grain to one can of sunflower and stir it up and this is what I feed the Birds and of course the squirrels which number around 13 and also one peacock who drops by sometimes.

    Nice story Glenn, I share your interest on bird feeding. Normally I start up in october and quit in may, for avoiding a rat problem I mix the seed and grain with coco nut fat and make balls that I hang up in nets. This way it won`t be so much spilled food on the ground wich again flag in rats. Nice collection of photos you got here:)

    Lovely collection of birds. I also enjoy watching the many varieties that come to feed from the native trees that we have planted and drink from (and bathe in) water we keep topped up for them.

    Voted. I have to go back to mixed seed also. With sun flower hearts- there is no waist- thus no rats- but not many birds either. :-(
