Feeding the Birds

Morning All!

Old Two Legs and The Missus are all right really.

I get looked after and they also have been putting out stuff for the birds.

I just love to sit by the window and watch all the birds come down to the feeders.

Birdwatching in the Warm!
We get loads of Goldfinches with the red patch on their heads, they go mad for the Niger Seed. I've tried a taste of the stuff but it gets stuck in my teeth!

The Blue Tits and Great Tits are potty for the peanuts in the feeders and the fat balls. OTL has seen Long Tailed Tits and Coal Tits in the garden, but not since the snow arrived.

We've even got a Blue Tit sleeping overnight in one of the bird boxes, I know this 'cos there is a camera in the box and I can see it on the TV in OTL's office.

Who's sleeping in my Box?

 I've seen a Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Collared Doves, Wood Pigeons, Dunnock's, Robins, Chaffinch, Green Finch, Wren, Blackbird, Starling and even a seagull (Black Headed Gull).

Phew! That's a lot of birds! And they all come to eat the food OTL and TM put out.

We get a lot of Starlings in the garden, a right bunch of Hooligans they are, if they are not chasing the other birds off the feeders, they are fighting among themselves! A quick 'Woof' from me soon sorts them out though.

Well, you've got to keep them on good behaviour or TM won't put out any more food.

That's why I am such a good puppy!

Bye for now, have a good weekend, I'm out with OTL on Saturday, trying to photograph snow on trees.

I wonder where we'll find them!


P.S.Don't forget the food and a drink of water for the birds!
