We have had our yearly visitors down from New England for a few days now and this is the first time that I was ready for them, well sort of :-(
As you know, I am getting my old computer on line and ready for vacation, my new computer works great however, it is real bashful, it does not like to go on line while away from home? The old girl, however, has no pride, she will go on line any place. :-) Both are Sony Vaio laptops?
I'm talking about the American Golden finch and the American Robin, the robins have been down for about a month and only requite a daily refill of the two birdbaths. The PIGS, I mean finch, on the other hand keep inviting their friends, neighbors, relatives and their cousins the sparrows, OH DARN!
This year while building those new types of feeders I also made a few mini feeders just for the finch food thinking that I would fool them, the only ones being fooled are our normal native birds and none of them are use to taking a ticket and waiting in line to eat. I now have ten assorted feeders around the house and could use ten more. Breanna, Donna and I spend half the day enjoying the sights and the other half keeping the squirrels in check, RETIRED? WHAT is RETIRED? :-)
Breanna is not going to make it without a lot more oxygen, she just keeps running from room to room, window to window, sleeps well though at night.
Oh well bring on the vacation, the old girl is rearing to go to work. :-)
We may not make it until vacation time, birds are happy. :-(
