Where Are My Birds?

  • When the weather turned really cold last week and my pesky chipmunk didn't show up for a few days, I thought it was safe to start feeding the birds the "good stuff" without Mr. Chippy stealing it all.
  • So with full feeders I waited for the birds to come. Several days went by and not a bird. I don't know where these northern winter birds went...farther south? They are normally feeding at my feeders every winter. I usually have Cardinals, Bluejays, finches and a Downy Woodpecker that eats the suet. Do they know something we don't?
  • We had a couple of warmer days and out popped the chipmunk stealing the seed again, but no birds.
  • I'm still waiting for the birds.

Come over to my house Linda they are in my back yard.

I have finches, cardnials, nuthatch, juncos, chickadees, and, oh yea, the squirrels.

Give it some time they will be back.
When we went away my feeders went empty and it took a couple of days for them to come back after I filled them.
