Finch War Wednesday

Oh, hi there.
Got thistle?
One day not too long ago, I told Annie all about the wonders of my goldfinch feeders.  I even accompanied her to the bird store to show her what to get.
Then she talked Jules into it, too.
We were all excited about it.
Giddy, actually.
Now we are all at war.
The War for Goldfinch Love.
I was feeling lots of the love.
I was the popular girl.
The birds always wanted to be with me.
Now, not so much.

I think they're spiking the seeds around the corner with a little something special to attract all the birds.
Some sort of Goldfinch Nip if you will.

But, the birds are starting to come back to their favorite place:
Chez Mental Mama.
What's that you say Annie?
Don't take your picture?
I can't hear you.
La La La La La La

Those are gorgeous pictures. OMG. I'm jealous.


Don't you know what secrets to keep? Never, never, never tell your bird secrets to your friends. Bet it was when you were under the influence of cocktail hour.

Those birds are so beautiful. We have these little chipmunks that are sneaking in and eating the feed from a couple of my feeders. But I think they are so darned cute that I won't chase them away.

Thanks for stopping by former neighbor! YES! Most of those are from Fairway where the security outside doesnt like it when I take pix .. come on ... its produce!

And some of the others are from Westside Market and the GreenFlea over at the schoolyard on 77/Columbus!

If you get homesick .. come visit again ...

Where in CT are you?
