We don't feed the birds here, well they take freely from our garden, but we don't supplement. We do however provide them with water. We have a free standing concrete Bird bath, two ponds and several hanging water bowls/dishes. We will add a very large water bowl soon.
I keep most of the hanging ones by the house, as seeing flocks of birds coming to them is interesting and never fails to delight us. This is the bowl outside my kitchen window, taken through the window.
This is how if often looks in the morning. We seem to have what I think of as 'Bird O'Clock' that usually falls between 7.30 and 9 am and flocks of small birds come down to enjoy the water sources. They drink from it and bath in it.
I have seen up to 10 silver eyes in and on this bowl at once with others coming sown the wires and waiting in the nearby branches.
it never fails to make me smile.
Happy Holiday Monday everyone what is making you smile today?
