Since we moved into this house nearly three years ago I’ve become an avid bird watcher. I think it’s because we have such big picture windows and we can easily see right out to the back. I find great joy in watching them and keep adding to their accommodations around our yard. I’ve officially turned into my father. 🙂
Is this what happens when you get older? Ha! Or maybe I’m just enjoying the simple things more as I age. Let’s go with that.
I wanted to show you a few of the things I’ve picked up for the birds lately and then some favorite items I’ve used for years. You know, in case you want to become a bird geek like me.
It just floats around — if it’s in full sun it works great. It does not hold any kind of charge, so as soon as it hits any shade it will stop working.
See how high it throws out the water?:
It comes with different caps to change the fountain if you’d like.
We don’t keep it out there all of the time because it tends to float to the edge so the water is thrown out of the bird bath. If it runs out of water but is still in the sun the motor will keep running — and it can get loud!
I plan to add tie a rock or something to the bottom to keep it from moving around so much. I’m super impressed with how powerful it is though! It would be great in a small water feature.
I found this Adirondack chair feeder years ago at Lowe’s and it’s my absolute favorite:
The birds love it even more! It’s so easy for them to fly up and eat what they want.
Unfortunately I can’t find anywhere but Tractor Supply anymore. Lowe’s and a few other places used to carry it. As you can see, our Blue Jays love it. 🙂
The cardinal couple we have nearby visits often as well:
Sometimes they knock some of the seeds out, but they always eat what lands on the ground too. I like having this one close to the house so we can see the birds up close.
Are you an avid bird watcher? I mean, in your backyard at least? 🙂 I actually considered buying some binoculars the other day so I can see some of them better. 😂 You better believe when we plant more trees in the back I’ll be adding more feeders!
