Sometimes I feel a little guilty even putting up bird feeders. The number of birds that meet their end in our backyard is more than I'd like. It seems our sunroom windows seem to draw these birds in, as they attempt to fly through them. You hear the thud, the window rattles and you just know, another one has bit it.
And I refuse to touch them. That's Don's job. Love that man.
Ha! Just heard a thud! Seriously!
Two days ago, after one had just bounced off the window, onto the patio, a curious Brady had to check it out. He was prodding it with his foot, asking his dad why the bird's mouth was opening and closing but the rest of him wasn't moving.....a teachable 'life lesson' moment!
So between the windows, the 3 1/2 year old who loves chasing them with sticks, and the cat that prowls in our backyard, scoping out the unsuspecting ones, these delightful song birds don't stand a chance!
