How are all your Christmas preparations coming along?
I felt a big "whew!" yesterday as I wrapped up my last gift with my side-kick, Annie aka Peach.
Now it is on to pie-baking & enjoying more movies.
Yesterday morning the sun came out, so while at the property, I walked around to enjoy the birds.
Thought I'd mess with their heads and put a tangerine where the apple goes and an apple on the big bad kitty.
Absolutely everything gets eaten in a few days. The feeders empty fast. I think I may have raccoons at night coming for food, too.
I have heard that you can tame a chickadee to eat out of your hand.
I'll be working on that this Spring.
There is actually a site that tells you how to do this.
I find them becoming quite tame already. Some stay on the feeder even when I walk up to it.
"Good morning, little chickadee."
Although I'm keeping things simple this year, I really must do something with my stair-case. Counting down the days now.
Stay toasty, Deb
I think having a chickadee eat out of your hand would be so very fun! I hope it works! I've read how to do it before and it seems to be a success for many.ReplyDelete
I haven't started wrapping gifts yet...that will be my chore tomorrow!
you are going to enjoy your new home so very much and all the wildlife.ReplyDelete
Hugs, purrs and a merry merry!
I llove that cat head feeder.ReplyDelete
Hello dear DEB, I think the chickadee is the best and fattest and finest bird in the feeder, I would love to tame one. Just wanted to wish you and your family of kittycats and people, a happy Christmas and a Jolly good New Year!ReplyDelete
The raccoons would definitely be seeking that out at night!ReplyDelete
That would be so great to have a little chickadee feed from your hand! Hope it works!ReplyDelete
Have you seen this video of a True Cat's Christmas Tree? Loved it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Am7Xj2gvsFA I so want to do that for a kitty when we can get one again... So perfect!
Your staircase is always a masterpiece! I can't wait to see what you will do,ReplyDelete
An afternoon with Peach sounds lovely.
You'll have that Chicadee eating out of your hand in no time♥️
Merry Christmas my dear.....
Merry Christmas dear Deb. I hope it is a good one for you and, you will have the chicadee eating out of your hand in no time. If anyone can do it you can..Have a wonderful holiday with your family..JudyReplyDelete
I'm sure all the birds at your place are happy. That reminded me that I need to refill the feeders for we had a slushy, slippery snow yesterday that made for treacherous roads and prevented us from going to Minneapolis to hear The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. :-(( We have had chickadees eating out of our hand. I think it was just a matter of standing very still and looking like a bird feeder. lol I hope you have a wonderful and happy Christmas, Deb!ReplyDelete
