For the Birds or Going Nuts?

There’s been a lot of colorful activity at the F&P feeders thisIMG_7398 past week, due to an added holiday treat — pecans. No, I didn’t buy these for the birds, they were “rejects” from my shelling the past couple of weeks. Smaller pieces were saved and added to the feeder daily — much to the birds delight.

Beautiful photographs of beautiful birds!

I can understand that they love pecans :-)

Have a good ending of this year!

What fun to have all those visitors. I guess they like cashews almost as much as we do.

Lovely photos, Dorothy! I would think pecans would be quite a treat for the birds. Happy New Year to you and yours!

Great bunch of photos. We have a lot of bird activity too. No Cardinals or Blue Jays though, unfortunately.
