But, today is absolutely beautiful. The sun is out brightly and it's inviting me outside to play,
Out of my front window you can see a clear road and more lovely fluffy snow. That's my new suet feeder hanging from the linden tree. It's only been up a couple of days, and hasn't had any visitors yet. I'm watching it closely because I'm not sure that this is the right place for it. It may be too close to the busy road. I wanted it in a different place from the rest of the feeders, and somewhere closer to the house, so that I could get some good pictures. I'll give it a couple of weeks there, and, if it hasn't attracted any birds by then, I'll move it further back into the yard.
I was wondering why the feeders were so quiet. Normally, on a morning like this, they would be brimming with avian life. Then I saw why. The Red-Tailed Hawk (ok, it's a Cooper's per two people who know so very much more than I do. That's cool, I never noticed one before) is back, high in a tree surveying the entire yard. As long as he is there, no one is going to be dumb enough to hit the feeders.
Have a peaceful and happy Sunday, everyone!
