Feeding the Birds

I have two feeders now, and it is so fun to watch the birds. I especially love the red cardinals. They are so beautiful against the white snow.
I had to take all these pictures from my apt. window, so they are not the best. If I try to sneak outside, they always fly away.

The trick is to have the feeders high enough that the deer cannot get them and out away from any limbs so the squirrels cannot reach them. Very hard to do. I do feed the squirrels dryed corn cobs. If you look carefully at the first picture you can see one hanging from a branch to the left of the feeder. You can also see a corn cob on the ground. However....they prefer the bird seeds :) Oh Well!
