We live in a rural area outside Youngsville. Today was a busy day as the winter storm arrived. I filled the feeders and my husband snapped the pictures.These were all of the red maple directly behind the house. It had two feeders and two of those Pennington’s disposable bird seed bells, but one of the feeders was broken while trying to rehang it after filling it. The ground feeding birds were happy about that but the cardinals and I were not.I found cold plastic landing on even snowy ground tends to shatter beyond repair. The red feeder survived and was filled with black oil sunflower seeds. After dark I will go hang more of the bells. They seem to be the most popular ‘feeders’ and fortunately were just on sale!


Ready For The Storm

The juncos and sparrows compete for the prized Penningtons bells (or what was left of one).
