This week I’ve seen a huge increase in the number and variety of birds visiting the feeder outside my front window. Since I moved it away from the lilac bush, the squirrel hasn’t been able to jump onto the feeder and empty it. But there have been plenty of birds:
mourning dove (they eat what drops on the ground)
robin (not at the feeder, but in the yard)
And I’ve heard the mockingbird singing, but I haven’t caught sight of him yet.
