Don't Forget Our Feathered Friends

It's cold and snowy here. Don't forget to feed the birds.


They love this suet recipe. I make the big squares for slicing in my soap mold and put them in my homemade suet feeders.

You may even see a fight or two over this stuff.


"It's MINE! Step away from the suet log!"

While the Cardinals fight, the Downy Woodpecker and Titmouse sneak in for a little snack.


At least they get along!


And then old Mr. Blue Jay crashes the party and runs everyone off. He's the law enforcement of the backyard!


Someone has to watch out for the little "Goldfinch" people!


And this guy refuses to do the job today. He has other places to be!

Those are great photos and I use the suet for our little feathered friends too. That reminds me I saw 3 blue jays the other day. I was kinda shock to see them.

I love watching my local birds come calling especially during the winter when it is harder for them to find food.

What a cute post. I love feeding the birds, too, and just blogged a few days ago about watching them eat out my kitchen window. I love how they all seem to get along with each other, they are fun to watch.

Don't forget the Great Backyard Bird Count in February!

A great way to spend time with your birds and help scientists, too. I'll be making some of your suet this week to try and increase the bird numbers at our feeders. Thanks!

These are some great photos! Beautiful birds and deer.

Don't you just love it when the deer look right at you. I don't know what they're thinking, but it's always neat to have them stare you right in the eye.

Hello! We stopped feeding the birds when we realize how much the farm cats were enjoying it!It's good to stop in for a visit:)
