CMP Review 2023-11-10

November 10, 2023

I was quite late to put up my window bird feeders this year. The snow had already been around for 10 days when I finally got around to installing them.

My feeders are held up by suction cups, so I had to wait for a warmer, sunnier day to install them. I like to wait to fill them until they have been up for a day, so that I can be sure the suction cups have taken properly and the whole thing won’t come tumbling down.

Well, the morning after I installed them, Serafina and I were sitting at the dining room table, doing some school work, and don’t we look over to the still seedless feeder, to see a chickadee sitting in it, looking right at us? (I wish I had gotten a photo of its pitiful face!)

With shouts of “Precious birds, you have come back!!! You remember us!!!” Serafina and I both absolutely melted at the sight.

We quickly filled the feeders, and we had a continuous stream of visitors all day, chickadees, white-breasted nuthatches, blue jays, sparrows, and downy woodpeckers!
