We put out bird feeders and hummingbird feeders. The bird feeders have a mix of cracked corn and sunflower seeds. An old feeder had whole kernel corn for the squirrels. The bird feeders are the anti-squirrel types. The critters would empty the old ones every day. Anyway, got some cute photos.

I also have a few feeders out and I have been fortunate enough to take a few pics of what has been stopping by.

Wow!  Those are Nat. Geo. worthy pictures, Bill !!!

I LOVE that hummingbird shot!

 

Skeet.  Bunnies are cute, and few things are as cute as a bunny eating clover.  The flower just wiggles as it gets closer to the mouth, until it disappears

Thanks Mike,

Took me more tries then I care to say to get it.....like 2 years worth LOL

-----------------------

Note...

Never use red food color in your Feeders, it will harm them over time, stick with 4 parts water to 1 part sugar, heat (microwave) to dissolve sugar

then let it cool down (fridge) before putting it in a clean feeder (clean and change food at least once a week), pipe cleaners work well

on the little holes.

I highly recommend Aspects HummZinger feeder

and have had these amazing little critters stay with me all summer for 3 years now.

Facts...

Their heart rate hits 300 BPM during the day and drops to 40 BPM at night, every night they survive is a miracle.

We tried hummingbird feeders a few years ago.  It starts to grow mold the minute it reaches room temperature here.  We took them down shortly after trying.  

Mother-n-law put two feeders out.  Found out the rats will chew through a plastic hummingbird feeder to get to the sugar in less than 30 minutes.

Thanks ChugBug,

My only problem is I like these critters...but I want their fur and feathers too and so far the only one that managed to up and croak on

my property was a skunk that stunk to high heaven!!

yeah I know, no song bird feathers or raptors ect.

-------------------

This critter was on my parsley Sunday, its a Black Swallow Tail Butterfly Caterpillar, so I brought it in the house for a photo shoot

and then released him back to the same plant.

:)

The last pic is a Grapevine Beetle that was truckin down my driveway, so I posed him for a few shots and let him go too.

A couple of things here- squirrels make great gravy. Don't forget the biscuits!

Cartoon- two caterpillars are on the ground with a butterfly flying overhead. Caption- You'll never get me up in one of those things!

Tip- a friend had skunks in an outbuilding. I told him to carefully and quickly toss a handful of mothballs into the building. Problem solved.
