Birds

Dear Mom,
This winter, I made the difficult choice not to feed the birds with the usual black oil sunflower seed and bulk wild bird seed mix. I have had too many problems with mice in the garage (which is now under control), and an overpopulation of squirrels coming into the yard. Instead, I put out suet cakes, and I have attracted several birds. I took an assortment of pictures from inside, looking out.
Red Bellied Woodpecker
Downy Woodpecker
Nuthatch
Pipsqueak's favorite (a cardinal)
and...WHAT'S THIS?!!!
This squirrel "hung around" for quite a while. The birds didn't mind, and I didn't either!
Love, Bonnie Jo

Bonnie, I am so jealous of your birds!! I wish we had such pretty birds here. Gotta get those sledders to stop running over the trees!
