A Letter For the Birds

Dear Birds,

Please be aware that the small sun bird feeders attached to my deck have been closed for the duration of winter. For your eating enjoyment, the backyard and front-yard feeders will be staying open no matter the weather.

Please watch for the re-opening of the deck feeders sometime in the spring. Which will probably be April... or May... sometimes even June...

Love Catherine


Happy Monday!

Burrrrr! We can relate to that, we're having a historic winter storm in the south...9 to 12 inches of snow due...we have about 5 inches now and it's not slowing up any. Keep warm y'all!!!

Lin said...

But in the meantime, here's a handful of snow for ya! ;)

The Monkeys said...

I'm sure the birds understand and appreciate that you're working to keep their other feeders open!

Kea said...

That not only helps the birds, of course, it also provides great kitty TV! A win-win!

Couldn't you stand out there with your hairdryer, melting the snow? :P

Deb said...

I feel for you. I saw the news this morning and you are really getting pelted. We have lots too and I'm tired of it. Hard to feed the ferals, too. Have a great week, Catherine.
Hugs, Deb=^..^=x5

Snow, i used to loveit but we had so much in December (nothing compared to you but for us Dutch quite a lot) that my love is over for this winter.However, 10 degrees and rain is not much fun either.....My parents called yesterday they always spend January and part of February in South Africa...its 28 degrees there, sitting outside with a cool glass of white wine is there core business.Lucky oldies.
Hang in there my friend, its already the second week in January :))))

Happy monday.

Stacey Dawn said...

Oh poor sunfeeder...but so very nice of you to post a notice for the birds!! ;o)

BumbleVee said...

My birdie bath and their little fountain area all closed up and hidden under snow too.... yep... til about June just like you.... sigh................................

all I see these days are some tiny chickadees flitting by at about 90 miles per hour... man, they must be tough little guys. How do they survive in this?

I'll be out there later..in everything hanging in my closet... trying to bust my way through some drifts on some sides of the house. On the sidewalk out front.. no snow at all... the north wind swept it totally clean. But..on the west and south....oh, boy... some hard packed drifts about a foot or two deep....

It's me said...

Beautiful post....be nice for our birds......lovely week........love Ria....

I am sure they are very thankful for the ones that are still open and the luxury of the seed that helps to keep them warm.

Heaven's to Betsy Catherine, with the rate we are going, perhaps by July those bird feeders may be open! We had early release today and probably won't have school tomorrow becuase of the impending ice; this is NC!!!

amelia said...

We too, are keeping the feeders going no matter what!! First thing in the morning I'm out there just at dawn, clearing snow and filling everything!!

*Ingrid* said...

Hello Catherine what a original picture,I think that the birds lovbe your stone sun in the summer!!have a beautiful evening....x

Angie, Catladyland/Katt Food said...

The birdies understand and then what a treat for them in the spring!

BeadedTail said...

That's a lot of snow already! It's a good thing some other channels of the Birdie Network are still on for Banjo!

Tamago said...

One of my bird restaurants is closed during winter, too :-)
It will be open in spring....looking forward to spring!!

Ann said...

LOL at Lin's comment. I think the birds won't mind the deck feeder being closed since the have alternate choices. We had a ton of guests at our feeders yesterday.

Dragonfly Treasure said...

*hugs*deb

YHOSIE said...

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Well---it looks as if the SNOW won that one!!!!! Poor little birdies... Glad you do have some other feeders though which they can use...

We've got snow here (only about 4-5 inches)--but I have to keep cleaning the snow out of some of them...

Have a good day tomorrow, Catherine.
Hugs,
Betsy

Woo - look at all that snow! Brr. I love the feeders, they're awesome :o)

Hot Rocks said...

Poor birdies...I think they have all gone south, which is where I would like to be right now.

lila Check said...

..and the bird relayed:
Dear Catherine,
How about you doing me a big favor, clean up the snow every day so i can feed my family of 5 birdies?
will love you for that...we can talk about some small payment for this deed later; maybe some lovely songs to awake you on lovely Summer morning?
love
mama bird.

WE saw some doves today being fed by a neighbor today. As soon as we get a thaw, I'm heading to Walmart for bird feed and a feeder.
