Birdies

I love to watch and feed the birds as I think most gardeners do. Recently I was at my mil's home and noticed her little birds.Tried as they may they couldn't figure out how to get into this little bird house. They finally gave up the idea.This ring neck dove is fairly new to our area. They are a lighter gray than our mourning doves. He was checking us out from the pine tree.My mil has this small feeder that the little ones seem to enjoy. She simply fills the jar and they eat the seed in the holes.Like this as you can see. Well one evening I happened to look out the window and low and behold one had gone thru the feeder hole and was sitting in the jar. Sorry no pic but it was so funny. He was just sitting there watching his little friends feed. Poor thing didn't even seem to realize he had a problem. Luckily DH was there and he went out and twisted the jar off and out the little one flew. So far, we haven't seen anymore venture in.

So until next time ya'll, enjoy your birds. They provide constant, free entertainment!

Eurasian Collard Doves are so pretty to me. I believe they started as a house pet and people started letting them go...read that somewhere. That last feeder looks like a chicken feeder, I love it. Glad your husband freed the trapped birdie.

Poor bird. Glad your husband got it out pretty quick.

Wish you had got a pic of that little bird in the feeder, that is too funny. Glad he was unharmed and your DH helped him escape. :)

Hi Susie! :)
My first thought was I gotta get one of those jar feeders. But I guess I will rethink that. Glad the birdie was saved.

Oh! Poor little thing! He must have been so confused! I bet all the other little birds were making fun of him, too.

The birds are so much fun to watch. Thankful that you all could set the adventurous birdie free! I put out my hummingbird feeder last week.

It's too bad you weren't able to get a picture of the bird in the jar. I'm glad your DH was there to rescue the poor thing.

Laughed at the bird in the jar! Poor thing.

Always enjoy your bird photos, Susie. The ring neck dove is very pretty!

That is funny, the bird examining the cap for an entrance, and also the bird getting trapped in the chick/bird feeder. I have never had a baby chick figure out how to get inside the jar.

Isn't this a great time of year for birds and flowers, so much new life right outside our doors.

I am glad you were able to save the little birdie, it would be sad to find it later if you hadn't.
Birds are very entertaining, aren't they?
Cute photos!

Glad your husband was able to release the little bird; he must have been very tiny to get inside--the bird, I mean:) I never used to be much of a bird-watcher until I started gardening; funny how the two just naturally go together.
