The Weekly Prompts Challenge: Bird Feeders
As the drought had set back the trees and the birds were coming into the garden, I thought I would set up a feeder with large parrot and wild bird food. I don’t normally advocate feeding of birds. I was only placing seed in there every few days. After the fire I made sure there was food in the bird feeder most days.
This is one reason that prompted me to set up a bird feeder. The Succulents in the garden and in pots on the verandah were being eaten by the King Parrots
Some days there is a line up to get a snack. The most I ever counted was nine King Parrots.
The little house bird feeder I found is big enough for one.
With a bit of a tilt as a King Parrot flies into the feeder some seed falls to the ground, so while you’re waiting just walk about under the feeder. The Peaceful Doves also found this a good way of getting food.
OK everyone, I’m finished……everyone?
PS This is one of the King Parrots who is around the garden a fair bit. He is smaller than the others, I named him Tiny, and doesn’t fly away when I come near. He always let me know when the feeder or bird bath was empty by whistling from the verandah railing. This was a hot day. You can tell by the way he is sitting wings out getting air flow.
