House Sparrow at the feeder

This feeder is at our home, not in Rockwood. It is for the cheap seeds. It is there for when I don't get the good stuff out to them. I rarely see birds at this feeder, because when I am home I give them the good stuff. Maybe I need to take this feeder to Rockwood so I can save a little on the seed that is going so fast.

that's the type of seed our birds throw on the ground, my husband just recently bought only the black sunflower seeds, same price, but they go really fast!! That's a great bird feeder I like those colors, cute birdie too.

Darla - I have been mixing 1 part sunflower chips, 1 part safflower, and 2 part black sunflower seeds. That is what I call the good stuff. They are eating us out of the new house at Rockwood.

They do gobble it up. That's why I started with my left overs. lol

Love these pictures, Leedra. The brown colors are perfect. My fav. is the 2nd one--where the little Sparrow is flying. BUT--they are all good.

I agree that the birds are eating us out of house and home. I quit buying the 'cheap' stuff because they won't eat it--well, as long as the good stuff is out!!! ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Wonderful pictures of the sparrow. I think this guy would be disappointed if you took the feeder to Rockwood.

You got some nice, clear shots and it looks like the sun is OUT! Lucky you - it is blowing, cold, ice and snow here!

Very nice pictures. My pro birding friends denigrate all aliens. Personally I think you've shown the lowly house sparrow in a very attractive way!

Beautiful lighting, it really makes the photo come alive.

I like your bird feeder. Whenever I put out sunflower seeds, they are gone in one day.

I just love the feeder. I see the sparrow does too, because he is coming in for a landing. Beautiful photos.
