I've moved the safflower seed feeder to the edge of the patio so that we can see the birds from inside. And, what a sight it has been. It is besieged by mourning doves, cardinals, titmice, chickadees, Carolina wrens and the finches. Even a bluebird will stop by on occasion. Thankfully, the squirrels don't care for safflower seeds, so they pretty much leave that feeder alone.
Well, I HAD some pictures of the squirrels on the back patio, along with the wren but they have disappeared. I was working yesterday to learn how to put a watermark on my pictures when I want, and I likely deleted them by mistake.
It's always interesting at this time of year to see who will stop in on the migration. This guy visits regularly because he's a resident of the area.
I also heard the first owl of the season a few nights ago. Sounded like there were two, or maybe three, great horned owls behind our house. I love the sound of their voices. You've seen this
picture before, but they're not easy to come by, so it'll just have to do.
Y'all take care.
