Feeding the Birds by Julia

by Embrace Country Life on 01/03/14


Every winter, we feed the outside birds.  Before Christmas, we went to Agway with our three friends, the Pompeiis.  We were trying to look for the perfect bird feeder and we found it!  It can fit two suets on the ends and birdseed in the middle.  The birdfeeder looks like a house.  When we bought the feeder, we got a free bag of birdseed! 

We brought it back from the store, put two suets and birdseed in and hung in on the first hook on our back deck.  Then, we went inside.  About a half hour later, the birds started eating everything on it!  We saw blue jays, nuthatches, and a mom and dad cardinal. 

Once a week, after barn chores, we go to the back deck and fill the birdfeeders.  First, my dad and I put the four suets in the feeders (we have 2 other suet feeders).  Next, we take down the other two bird feeders and fill them with birdseed.  We have a red funnel that we use to pour the seed into the feeder.  Then, we hang them back up and wait for the birds to come visit.

  I love seeing the birds come to the feeder and eat the food!
