Backyard birdies…

A book, and a beer, out on the lanai on a beautiful afternoon turned into this..

I mean, who could resist? She looks so sweet and innocent.
Now she is daring the rest of the birds to come to her feeder.

I bought the Bird Buddy after dithering over it for a while. We saw birds fly through the yard from one neighbor’s house to the other, but they seldom even posed on the fence. It was expensive, and addictive too. We’ve added a bird bath, and an extra perch for more landing spaces. Millet is what I’m thinking we need. Maybe painted buntings will find us. We are a stopping off point for migrating birds on their way further south. Even if you don’t intend it, you can’t live here long without becoming a bird brain.
