WINTER INTEREST IN THE GARDEN - birds
Today it is -22 Celsius and there is not much going on in my gardens.
Do not get me wrong, it is very, very pretty out but there is not that much activity, no buzzing bees or butterflies wafting through the air.
There are however birds, and the best way to get to see them is by providing them with food. After all they are so small they could use our help; did I mention it is -22 Celsius out?
I placed this suet feeder just outside our kitchen window where we can see them every day. Today I had what appears to be a little woodpecker of some type as well as the usual Chickadees.
Quick tip: freeze the suet before you place it in the feeder or be prepared to get very greasy fingers!
