Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Build It and They Will Come!

I finally got enough get up and go to build a temporary bird feeder. It is set up just outside the patio doors. It's only been up a few days, but has attracted lots of wildlife.

 The blue heron looked regal.
 Wood ducks were present
 Even a Barrow's Golden Eye showed up!
The Canvasback seemed to like the view.

Seriously, this is just wish full thinking with some of the birds that I have carved over the years. We will have to wait and see what real stuff shows up. :-}

Not to worry, some real birds will show up eventually. I've never known them to turn down free food. Your carved birds are fantastic! You've got some serious talent!

Great carvings.
Here you are my feeder or whatever blogger uses now had lost you ( think when I left google plus things went goofy) Hopefully I can get you locked back in to my feeder and see what birds DO show up.
