Back at the end of November, mom got us a couple of bird feeders on one of her many shopping trips. She had gotten rid of a lot of stuff before the move and some of it needed replacing. When she went to hang the feeders, she realized her little kitchen step ladder wasn’t tall enough to reach and she needed a ladder. Even once she got the ladder, there were more delays in hanging the feeders. Sheesh!
A couple of weeks ago, she got two more feeders and bird seed. She got a really pretty feeder with fake birdies on it and a purple one just for me! She said she had to do it but it is a little tacky so it had to go in the back yard. The pretty one is in the front.
She told us it might take the birdies a while to find the feeders because there is still a lot of natural food on the ground. She also told us that it would probably take a while for them to get used to coming so close to the house.
For the first few days after the feeders were up, NOTHING happened. Then, one brave little birdie came a couple of times, grabbed a seed and flew away.
Mom decided to leave the blinds down but open so the birdies couldn’t see us so easily on the other side of the window. This seemed to help and more and more birdies started coming.
They still don’t seem to have found my beautiful purple feeder though. I am patiently waiting. I like this spot because this is my heated bed. Here birdie, birdie. I only want to watch. Really.
Happy bird watching.
When mee Aunty Nylablue wass alive there were bird feedurss here. Butt thee peeple who run thee place told all thee peeple to take them down. So LadyMum had to give all of herss away.

I remember reading about the birdies that came to visit your Aunty Nylablue. Are they the ones that are still there? Sorry you don’t have more to watch because it is pretty entertaining.
Oh Christie, the one feeder is doing terrific. I’m envious. We still get 1 woodpecker. Personally I think its the same woodpecker.
There was a birdie on my purple feeder this morning. I’m just sure of it but mom scared it away when she opened the blind. I hope it comes back soon.
Aaaaw Christy we fink yous purrple feeder is bootyful and not at all tacky. We hope da birdies find it soon.

I bet it won’t be long before at least one birdie comes – then he’ll spread the word and before you know it – GREAT bird TV at the purple feeder!
I sure hope so, Sammy. They’ve been coming to the front feeder for several days now but I haven’t seen a single one on MY feeder. I keep watching.
Pawsome Bird TV ! Purrs
I hope the birdies discover your purple feeder soon! That’ll be awesome Bird TV!
Give it time, Christy. We know those birds will find that feeder before you know it. And then you’ll have some pawsome Bird TV!

MOL! Mom spoils us pretty good with all those other things. We do enjoy watching those birdies. We can always hope to catch one someday, right?
That is a pretty feeder, I am sure they will come to it soon.
No worries! They will come! Isn’t the purple feeder primarily for hummingbirds? I am asking because it looks similar to ones that I have seen that are primarily for hummingbirds
No, this feeder holds seed, not sugar water. Mom’s friend, Kelly, next door has tons of hummingbird feeders so mom is leaving the hummingbirds to her.
I sure hope they start coming to your purple feeder…it is gorgeous!
