I love watching the birds almost as much as my cats do!
We get a Cardinal couple coming to our feeders, I think they nest in the hedge. They're so pretty, especially on a drab day, they really brighten up the scenery.
Our friends are out in the country and they get a lot more action at their feeders. They have woodpeckers, finches and even hummingbirds - my fave. They also have grackles which their cat used to harrass - until one day the birds fought back. Poor Annie (the cat) had a nasty wound on her shoulder which took a while to heal.
