birds at feeders
I don't know why some people don't like doves, I think they are beautiful birds right from the blue eyeliner to the pink iridescent spot on their necks. We made a feeder for them using an old piece of PVC pipe. DH cut in half lengthwise, made some braces for it to sit on and put it on the top of the fence. It has some smaller holes drilled in the bottom for drainage. As you can see, it is quite popular with the doves. Being black, it warms up quite a bit on a sunny day and we usually see 4 or 5 sitting in there. Marg
This year we have lots of doves, blue jays and woodpeckers. Today the blue jays stayed away.
This poor little guy crashed into out dining room window. When I heard the crash I ran outside to see if it was alright. It was stunned by the accident but I stayed nearby just to make sure that nothing got to him/her. After a while it flew off.
