Rain or Shine...Birds Dispute




Two birds disputed about a kernel, when a third swooped
down and carried it off!

  1. Cudowne zdjęcie. Też obserwuję drobne walki ptaków o pokarm w moim karmiku. Pozdrawiam. *** Wonderful picture. Also watch for me little birds fighting for food. Yours.

  3. And all of this makes owning a birdfeeder fun!! I love watching them all trying to eat together. When they get it down, I introduce a new feeder and that switches up their eating patterns:)

  5. My feeders look very similar Cat! I love to watch the birds and listen to their chatter. I expect the cedar waxwings to make an appearance very soon. Cant' wait for that!

  6. Someone needs to tell those birdies that there's plenty of kernels to go around :) Nice pics.

  8. Wow, those goldfinches are so colorful! I have had some at my feeders lately, but they are still rather dull colored. Maybe I am misidentifying them. I fill my feeders and I swear the next day they are empty. I think I have more than birds visiting. Grrr. Loving the RAIN we are getting!! It is POURING as I type this. Every little bit helps.

  9. Lovely shots Cat,
    I am always seeing some sort of argument break out on the feeders in my garden! I suppose when food is scarce, birds will fight for their lives!

  13. I love bird feeders in winter - what wonderful shots! You are reminding me to order a new one. Our last one rotted out and I miss my winter visitors.

  14. The best part of winter is seeing the birds. But I have never understood all the fighting. It must be a hard life for them to have to fight over every kernel of food.

  15. What a great proverb. I don't feed the birds any more, it got too expensive, but what I miss most is watching their quarrelsome antics on the feeders.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
~A.A. Milne

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
