Since Monday I have not been well. My body has not been able to regulate temperatures well, either cold and can't get warm or I break out in a sweat. Then there are the body aches and head aches. Hoping today it'll be kicked. Yesterday I watched a Brown Creeper visit the suet many times on the big oak tree. It was 70 outside and I could have tried to get photos of the Brown Creeper, just could not find the energy.
Meg celebrated her birthday recently, now 107. Anyway I made her a bird feeder she could enjoy from her favorite chair in the living room.
This bird house is made entirely of cedar scraps I had left over from a big job I did. The odd support is attached to a deck railing post. The elongated hole is designed to lighten the load and cut back the wind load. I was thinking the birds might like it too.
The first day the feeder was up it was visited by honey bees, 4-6 at a time, it was a warm day. I saw bees yesterday when it was warm as well. I looked this up and found that bees can emerge early and without any nectar sources they will seek secondary nectar sources which can be found in bird feed.
