Yes, I am so excited because yesterday ..wait for it...
I HAD TO RE-FILL MY BIRD FEEDERS!!!!!!!
Did you get that people? I HAD TO RE-FILL MY BIRD FEEDERS!!!! There must have been a party!
I am officially 'someone who has re-filled a bird feeder' and I'm thrilled about it. It has made me absurdly happy all day. Did I tell you I had moved our feeders to a different part of the garden away from this position (the first post - Part One) - well they're now on our neighbours tree which hangs over the side of our alleyway. We have a better view from the house and more importantly, the kitchen window.
I noticed the feeders were almost empty and was blaming it on the wind blowing the feeders around assuming the food was falling on the ground. I then noticed that the sparrows were visiting rather more frequently. Could it be, I thought?
So yesterday evening Anth kindly got out the step ladder and I re-filled them. Then waited.
I didn't have to wait long to get some visitors so maybe it isn't the wind taking the food. Sadly, though it is only sparrows that have come to party on my feeders, but I'm ever hopeful we may get some other birds. Either way, I'm so thrilled that I have joined the ranks of 're-fillers of bird feeders.' Though not everyone is quite as thrilled as me when I overheard a, "I can see this costing a fortune!" Perhaps, it was the glazed look in my eye as I was dreaming out aloud about nesting boxes, bird baths, bird tables... oh yes, and one of those hidden nest box cameras things. Ooh, the possibilities are endless now I had to re-fill my feeders...sigh....
