Get in Line
We’ve been trying to attract songbirds to the feeder at our house in town for several years now. We have not had much success due to the newness of the subdivision which means not enough mature landscaping to satisfy their needs. We’re seeing more promising results this spring, with chickadees and finches showing up, perhaps just on their way to their favorite nesting grounds but maybe the surroundings here are finally starting to impress them. Still it’s the regulars, the magpies and crows, who are our most frequent visitors. Sometimes there are so many the line for food gets quite long. On this snowy day last week, the wait was not bad at all.
