For my birthday in June my mum gave me two bird feeders. (This post has been sitting in my draughts for a while and appropriately today, the day I finally get around to posting it, is actually mum's birthday! - Happy Birthday mum xx)
We hung them both out in front of the lounge and have been really enjoying seeing all the birds discover the treats we leave for them.
It took a few days for the birds to first discover the food was there, this yellow finch was our very first visitor. We have since had wax eyes, blackbirds, minors, fantails, thrushes and sparrows come visiting, sometimes there are crowds of them. They line up on the tepee frame over the garden and wait their turn for a feed.
Sometimes the trees are filled with birds. I have noticed a lot more birds all over the garden since we put the feeders in, even when there is no food put out.
The sparrows and wax eyes below are enjoying a tasty treat of seeds and fat that the kids mixed up for them.
