I needed to get the job done. I went to the basement, found some scrap wood, and made a temporary roof for my tray bird feeder.
It is a temporary fix as it should be a pyramid shape roof that will shed the snow as a blogger friend suggested.
So far it is scary to most of the birds. I have one brave soul on the feeder, but they will get brave. A harsh wind will blow it off so I may go get a brick from the basement and weigh it down.
At the hanging feeder, the birds line up on the mock orange bush to scout out some space to land.
Blue jays being who they are usually scatter everyone and don't share.
The cardinal seems to be a peaceful bird as they are so easy for the other birds to get along with at the feeder. I have a similar picture of this blogged earlier somewhere. This is a new photo that shows the snow coming down in large fluffy feather-like shapes.
Thanks for stopping in........
Oh yes, I have an Ebay experience to share soon. I didn't win of course!!!!
Ok, I am wrong, I gambled and won it for way too much money. Oh well, living life is a learning experience, I will share later.
