Bird Feeder

Not far from our recently-installed bird feeder we have a garden statue. For the last couple of months, it has become a perch for birds waiting their turn at our new bird-seed feeder and suet feeder. As expected, we also have some squirrel challenges, from the big fat grey squirrels that have always lived in our yard, and from smaller red squirrels that have only recently moved into the territory. We are enjoying the spectacle of both birds and squirrels, including an aggressive gang of house sparrows and several more appealing species of warblers, finches, woodpeckers, etc.

My recent photo collage showed some of the birds that have been feeding here, but I had a request for a picture of a male rather than a female cardinal -- this is it. Len took this and all the other bird photos with his good cameras and specialized lenses.

About that garden statue: we bought it in Traverse City many years ago, and it's occupied various locations in the yard ever since.
