There couldn’t be a better time, I think, to be learning about them. Every morning we’ve awoken to the sweet sound of these little creatures, and my children are fascinated every time they catch a glimpse of any kind of creature in our backyard.
The glimpses are short lived however because, as it seems, the neighbors have better birdseed then us.
You see, we use the Cheepy “Wild Bird Seed” mix that you can pick up at any Walmart…
….And apparently, the birds in our neighborhood are accustomed to a finer dining experience. Ones that involve ears of corn, pine cones and Fancy, Smancy, Bird-Mansions.
But today folks, we’re taking back the neighborhood (birds)
And we broke out the heavy artillery: Peanut Butter.
Straight Up Dawg.
(LOL, I giggle inside everytime I say that)
Ahem….You read right, No more Mr. Rogers friendly neighborhood around here people! We brought out the Peanut Butter, Bagels, and Birdseed for a deadly combination we like to call: B3
And what my kids didn’t snack up, we actually fed to the birds.
Or, Kind of…….we can’t really tell if the birds actually got to eat any of these delicious treats, because the morning after we hung them they mysteriously disappeared.
Was it a lonely squirrel searching for a midnight snack…..
Or could it be our mischievous neighbors, combating the B3 bagel with a Special Opps night mission?
You be the judge.
Just to be sure, when you make yours be sure and hang them from a tall branch. Not from a fence where the neighbors can reach it.
