Hanging in there

One of the birds favorite feeders is the simplest in design - it's just a mesh sock that holds bird seed. 

It was explained to me that if you fill it with niger thistleseed you get only finches, which is nice, but with the smaller wild bird mix you get a variety of birds.

The other favorite feeder is the oriole feeder with half an orange and grape jelly.  I usually find this on the ground each morning waiting for washing and refilling.

Long Live the Queen of Hangups


  1. These are beautiful! I especially love woodpeckers!

  2. Wow, you get quite a collection of birds at your feeders. I get the finches and the wood peckers, but not the orioles. I'll have to set out a special feeder for them to see if they might come to my yard.

    Your book covers are wonderful. The themed material covers are really nice, but my favorite is the cover for the Rabbi. This was an actual quilt project and you did a great job with it.

    Now I'm off to beddy bye. You have a wonderful night, hugs, Edna B.
