    I love feeding my birds, and I'm very good about keeping ALL of the feeders filled. There's thistle, suet, cracked black sunflower, corn cobs, and nectar for the hummers. It rains enough here that the Robins are on their own.

    There is a colony of Starlings outside making a cacophony of screeching noises as they fatten up their hundreds of nestlings. I'm letting this bit of suet run out then I'm hanging it up until they leave the nest. It ticks me off to see them gobble down my hard work in a matter of minutes! And they bully everyone else away. Even the blue jays and the squirrels are afraid of them!

    I am so looking forward to starting a bird feeding corner in my new house, when we get it. I love watching birds activities.
    Sorry about the Starlings. I do not know which birds those are, I guess I am going to have to read up. Noisy birds is something to consider. Hopefully, it will not last long.
