The birds are coming to the feeders

Goose Island is a haven for birds of all kinds and sizes.

The orioles are back in full force and love grape jelly.

I've seen indigo buntings and a hummingbird also, but no photos of them....yet.

And Miss Edna reminded me that I need to fill my thistle bag for the gold finches.  I wonder if I could find a way to haul two shepherds hooks with us for hanging more bird feeders. 

I usually hang the hummingbird feeders on the awning to draw them in close, but that's not an option until we can find the parts needed to fix it. 

Long Live the Bird Queen


  1. Oh, I love this. I really am looking forward to pictures! Bill loves Orioles, and they do come every year. But, he sees all kinds on his road trips. I might get to in July! Happy Mother's Day to you. Enjoy!

  2. Oh wow! I love the orioles, but have never seen them in my area. What a creative jelly feeder! I've never seen anything like it. I'll have to look around. If all it takes is a jar of jelly to draw out the orioles, then I'll be picking up a nice big jar of jelly. You have a great day, hugs, Edna B.
