This is one of 2 flat spots near to the house that I put a small amount of nuts and seeds. The Titmice, Cardinals and Chickadees can feed here and avoid the House Sparrow crowds at the flat feeders in the yard.
Chickadees, Nuthatches & Titmice

Thank you, Andree, for your kind comments. I, too, love to see birds and hear stories from other bird watchers in places that I may never have the chance to visit. I’m so glad you enjoyed my backyard birds.
