Changes to the Railing

Hi, everyone!  Sera here.  I’ve been busy fattening up for the winter.  I grab as many peanuts, acorns and sunflower seeds as I can grab these days.  I eat and eat and eat.  I’ve got to put away what I can now. If I can’t fit it in, I bury it for a snowy day later on.

And, look what else has happened here at the gray house!!  I still haven’t figured out how I’m supposed to sit on the railings now.  I could always chew through those nice plastic wires between the light bulbs like I did last winter to the light strings in the trees.  Hmmmm.

I Saw What You Did! (And I Appreciate It!)

Sera, my friend.  I was so glad that nice lady gave you peanuts today.
Not on my diet. Now, you know I like to share, but I must admit the seeds
that were left on the ground, after you spilled the feeder and 
skeedaddled up to the porch,  were wonderful!  And, so much easier
for me to get to than trying to perch on that wobbly feeder...at least
they were easy to get to until those darned cats showed up.  Boy, did
I ever spread my wings in a hurry.  Thanks again!

SydneyThat's me on the left, by the way.  The "fat" one is a pigeon.

Gotta fly. Love, Sydney

What a Difference a Few Hours Makes

Hi, everyone! Sera here.  Boy, I was lucky to catch the lady of the house home earlier today.  She sure looked like she needed cheering up.  She saw me, took my picture, and then smiled and laughed. I was glad to lift her spirits.  Besides, I got a big handful of peanuts just for posing on the railing for her.  She’s nice, and she always so friendly and glad to see me and others here who visit the feeder.  Here are some photos from this morning when it was sunny and clear.

Here is the same railing a few hours later when the storm had moved in.  What a difference!  I’d gone home by then.  I had a tummy full of peanuts and decided to nap while the winds whipped up and the snow started to fall.

As you can see here, the sparrow on the feeder is the only one silly enough to be out in the snow and the cold.  I guess she got the prime seeds, though.
