You might remember a bit ago I told you about my squirrels.
I adore them. Now we have not one but two or even three squirrels at the feeder. The chitter chatter and chase all around the tree. The childcare kiddos have loved it and I love it too.
That’s got me thinking about birds. Oh, I would just love to have birds like I have the squirrels.
Some time ago I bought a couple bird feeders….I put them out but never got a single bird. Not one. That was last fall. I was so discouraged. I took the feeders down. Here they are on a shelf in the garage.
I vaguely mentioned something about it on the blog and readers sent in a few things of advice. That’s when I realized that there actually is a talent to getting birds to come.
So then I went to WalMart to see if I could figure something out. Oh my word…Instead of helping it was overwhelming. See??
Oh…no. I started to think there is no way I’m going to figure this all out.
There are too many choices and no advice to go with the options. Who knew there was so much to getting birds to come.
Ah…Hummingbirds. They are likely one of my favorite bird. Oh, could I get them to come…What cute little feeders. I think they might be an economical bird to get to come as I’ve seen homemade recipes for the nectar. Hmm.
But wait…this little feeder is cuter but it’s glass and more expensive. I didn’t really care. I just wanted some birds to come.
But…then I was overwhelmed…and went home with nothing. I thought to try to do some research to learn something first so I could make a wiser decision rather by things for birds that aren’t even in my area.
So, it’s been a couple weeks. I’ve not done any research. I still want birds to come. I thought I’d ask all of you. Do any of you have luck with birds? Can you share some advice? I live in NE Iowa…my squirrels are out by the road at the front of the house….I have window and space for feeders in the landscaping areas that Craig and I put in. Advise away…please??
