Heeeerrrrre Birdie, Birdie

This is a familiar sight in my backyard. This is how my bird feeder looked all last year. Empty. Since the economy was so bad, even the birds felt the effects of the recession. No fast food for them. Instead, they had to rely on their natural instincts for food. Poor birds. But then along came 2009--a new year, a year of hope, a year of change, a year where the month of January has 3 paychecks instead of the usual 2. So I filled the bird feeder and waited. And waited. And waited.

But no birds came to the feeder. Hmmm....I wonder why.

  1. That is adorable. Daisy dog loves to run out and chase the birds off. Our feeders had been empty to till I decided that I could afford just 1 bag a paycheck. Poor birds will have to live on rations. LOL

  14. Oh my gosh, our dog does the same thing!!! She is obsessed with birds and hangs out by the bird feeder as much as possible. My daughter is so distraught-she loves it when we get "customers" at our feeder.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!
