Birds of a Feather

It's been a very very cold week this week.
But it has it's advantages.
The bird feeder on my patio seems to attract a lot more visitors lately.
Do you remember the jackdaw that visited me the other day?

I think he has a girlfriend.
He invited her to feast on the suet balls with him.

Aren't they adorable?
They say they're bad luck, but I don't believe that.
That's just because they're black, right? Anyway, they're more than welcome here.
I stocked up on more suet balls and peanut garlands yesterday.
It's great to have birds visiting my patio, and it's good to know that I actually can take pictures through the window. They seem to come out reasonably well.

While writing this, I got visits from the robin and the blackbird as well.
More pictures to come! Yoohoo!! I love it!
