Because there is no seed in the feeder, and just suet, the squirrels don't bother anymore.  And we are back to attracting some really pretty birds, like these guys.   I took these pictures through the kitchen window.  A friend from Nantucket who happens to be a bit of a bird expert has now told me what each of these birds are, so I am labeling each one...


Cardinals (male and female)

Here are the birds that have laid eggs in a potted plant in our garage.  First there were two eggs, now we're up to 6 eggs!  They don't seem to mind our coming and going in the evening with the loud garage door going up and down.  Guess they figure it's the price they pay for a warm safe garage nest!
