I couldn’t resist the humor in these photos. The cast iron feeder with integral iron birds standing guard over the bowl, and the small songbird using one of them as a perch before feeding.
Sometimes you just have to let yourself go and jump right into the fray…in this case a bowl filled with bird feed.
One just never knows who may drop by. The bird feed is for Cardinals, but all we have seen eat of it are a variety of small songbirds…until Mr. Jay dropped in. I must admit he looks a bit perplexed.
A closer look is needed to see if what’s in the bowl is worth getting.
Once that decision was made, the Blue jay grabbed his share, stared down his iron relative, and then flew off not to be seen again.
Isn’t Spring wonderful !!
