Backyard Birdfeeder

Laura gets a closer look at birds visiting the feeder. Our regular visitors include grackles, blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, red wing black birds, sparrows, a tufted titmouse, and some ruby throated hummingbirds.

The Eliminator Squirrel Proof Bird Feeder is guaranteed to ‘protect our bird seed bounty.’ The first feeder we had was ripped apart by a marauding squirrel.

The kitchen window is our central observation post.

    That is really neat that you have so much wildlife around for your children to view and have all that a city has to offer. The boys always love going outside to check on our tadpols (spelling) in the drainage. It is a fun way to teach them different lessons using the animals as an opening. One lesson I found very useful is we have some toads that will get run over in the road and the boys can see what will happen to them if they venture onto the roads in front of cars.

      The lesson of the mushed toads is an important one. I need to remind Laura of this one as she pulls away from me in parking lots.

    Somehow I missed this post until now.
    We love our bird feeders and Carter has taken a real interest in the birds and being able to identify them (he actually has two bird books.) We have a pole system like you do but we have a squirrel bell that is attached to the post that keeps them away from the food.
    I love that you have a red fox that visits you – how neat!
