red_clay BS: Feeding the birds (42) RE: BS: Feeding the birds 06 Nov 04

dang mmario!!! sounds kinda cruel to me! what if you could not feed yourself and depended on someone to feed you? and what if they only fed you on the weekend and left you on your own for the rest of each week?...
my wife and i have several feeders on our carport and feed the birds year round but especially during the cold winter months! a 50lb bag of oily sunflower seeds cost about $10.00 and will last about 2 months! we also buy the wildbird seed too, which is another $10.00 for a 50 lb bag. it too,will last 2 to 3 months!anyway,it's a small price to pay for the enjoyment we get to watch the variety of birds that pass our way and the regular ones that are native to our area and depend on that feeder when the ground is frozen and the weather nasty cold!!! we also put out a few suet feeders to give the birds the high energy food that they need to stay warm and survive during the wintery cold months! again,a small price to pay for the enjoyment we get from God's little feathery creatures that depend on us to feed them! by the way,a bird bath nearby is also required to help these adorable creatures!we have ...the chickadees, tuffted titmouse, nuthatch,cardinals,downey woodpecker,red headed woodpecker,junco(snow birds),gold finches,purple finches,blue birds,blue jays,humming birds(summmer time),indigo bunting,doves,crows(in the pasture only)rose breasted grosbeak,cow birds,cedar wax wings,mocking bird,brown threasher,robins,house wren,sparrows,...and the squirrels?,well,we have those for breakfast in the winter!
