I made another batch for our resident birds and purchased 100 lbs of seed this week. That should keep them happy for awhile.
The feeders have come up to the front from the wood-lot now and I'm hoping the shy birds will pull up their britches and join the others at the feeding stations. Juncos are back; chickadees and blue-jays are plentiful and our beautiful red cardinals and mates have returned. :)

I'll be back. My connection is bad today and I can't upload photos. 

hugs, Deb
