We mix chicken scratch and black oiled sunflower seeds together to feed the birds in our area.
We have all kinds of birds, blue jays, bluebirds, red birds, mockingbirds, woodpeckers, dove, chickadees, wrens, house sparrows, brown head cowbirds, black birds, black bellied whistling ducks, hawks, buzzards, grackles, crows, & ravens then we have quite a variety of seasonal birds that hibernate in our area for the winter.
This beautiful sunflower glistens in the morning light on the back fence line as it reaches for the morning sun.
There were two bird nest one wren and one house sparrow in my hanging baskets off the back porch. One had baby birds the other had eggs and I did not get pics of either one because birds fledge so fast 12 – 15 days from eggs to flight.
When the bird’s plant seeds for us I think it’s their way of saying thank you for feeding them.
