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

Put it Up and They Will Come


My old feeder was slightly banged up, so I scrapped it and put up a new one. It only took one day for the birds to find it.

The Hairy Woodpecker was one of the first. He liked the home grown sunflower heads.


The Evening Grosbeaks were close behind. It doesn't take long for the word to get out.



The Sparrows showed up of course. I'm not sure which type this is. He doesn't match up with my reference books.


There are a lot of Robins still about, even though we had about 8 inches of snow on the ground. They stayed in the Crab apple tree.



Dark Eyed Juncos were also there.



My Favourite clowns, The Bohemian Waxwings put on a good show.





OK, OK, so this Red Tailed Hawk was not at the feeder. I found him down the road a bit. Poetic licence I call it!
