I usually don't feed the birds after the weather gets nice but this year is an exception. I saw one lone goldfinch trying to find a seed in the empty feeder recently and immediately filled it up. I had almost a whole garbage can full of sunflower seeds left from the winter. I actually stopped all my feeding because the seeds were attracting mice. I got one in the house (two actually) and nothing distresses me more than knowing those creatures are running around inside. After I stopped feeding the birds, I had no more mouse problems.
I am hoping mice don't want to be inside in the warmer weather. After this can of seeds is gone, I will stop feeding my feathered friends. I hope they will stay anyway and I know they will. It is so wonderful to wake up each morning to their singing. The peepers (tree frogs) are quite loud too.
Thanks for stopping by the cottage for a visit. Stop again soon. ♥Rosemary
