Nutty Birds

No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.

We don't see Nuthatches at our feeders, but that little Chickadee is one of my favorites!! I love his cheerful little song as he lands for a seed!

Chris said...

Splendid shots Shelley. I love both of them... I went to see the loon today but did not see them. They are hiding somewhere!

Wish we could keep the nuts out but Blue Jays are nuts about them not counting the bad sguirrels and they will not stop until the last nut is gone.

I never thought about hanging just peanuts for the birds..does it take a special type of bird feeder?
We have always just gotten mixed seeds and sunflower seeds...so I need to get some nuts to get more birds here.

Such beauties. Really, lightens the mood immediately.

Read the Thoreau line in the blog header. Reminded me of the book The Fall Of A Sparrow by the celebrated Indian Ornithologst, Dr. Salim Ali.

Hey that comment scares me - I LOVE peanuts and crave them at times and can never, EVER stop at one peanut - haha! Your birds are smart - they are high protein and lots of energy there - cute pictures!

Such little sweethearts! I know I take them for granted because we have them here all the time, year around. They are not nearly as afraid of me of many other birds...In fact, it is usually one of them or a Tufted Titmouse that makes the announcement to the rest of the bird world that I have filled the feeders and breakfast is ready.
