OK.....see this tree......?

(click on picture to enlarge)

Looks like an ordinary....ohhhh..... say......12 foot Frasier Fur....Right?!

Why am i posting a picture of tree branches??

Well....what you can't see.....'cause my camera needs a better zoom lens.....is that this tree is quivering, there are soooooo many birds in it...!!

Hidden in the branches are cardinals......blue jays......sparrows.....wrens......doves......some sort'a little gray feathered friend.......a few i have no idea what they are and even several crows.....

I just threw cracked corn and birdseed on the hard packed snow and they are waiting for me and the dogs to go inside....

Then the feeding frenzy will begin.......and give the dogs hours of barking pleasure...!

Enjoy

  1. How nice of you to feed the birds. I did see a pair of cardinals and a smaller bird with a white looking breast. Bet you will enjoy all that barking LOL.

  3. What a joy that must be to see. Birds and more birds. I think most of ours went south. I like the spot in the sun where the diva is parked.

  5. FunnY! Like the tree is "possessed" if you didn't know better! My little cocker Ben goes out and stands facing the woods barking at the deer. He can't see them but he knows they are there. We are coming out of the deep freeze today with highs in the mid teens...tomorrow in the 30's, whoo hooo!

  6. It's nice that all the different birds can get along well enough to share the same tree. I think the birds I could see in the picture are the scouts. They'll let the others know when the coast is clear. LOL!

    The birds have been active around the deer feeders here.

  8. How neat, and you are right enlarging your picture does show the birds..thank you! We have our feeders filled, but so far the birds have not visited...it is very cold here, just 8 degrees so we are hoping to help the birds! We have had a problem with a Black Bear family and were advised by the Game Commission to delay feeding the birds...and I am hoping the bear family is in hibernation and the birds can have a turn!
