This year I set up three bird feeders side by side and have been enjoying many different kinds of birds around the yard. My favorites are cardinals, bluejays, woodpeckers, northern flickers, and other common birds.
This cardinal braves the rain and comes to feed in peace after the squirrel has opened up the top of the feeder. I shot the photos through the glass window, but he still spotted me and not quite happy about it.
My suet feeder went empty in just a few hours. The other two seed feeders got empty in about a day and for the most part the seeds went to the squirrels.
