Draw A Bird Day, May 2019

It’s been fun watching the migratory birds at the back yard feeder this spring. I tried something new and added a feeder specifically to attract birds that love fruit. One side of the feeder holds a cup filled with grape jelly, and the other side has two spears on which to slide orange halves.

I was hoping to attract the migrating Baltimore Orioles, but I guess I’ll have to settle for painting one. I’ve read that it could take a few years for the orioles to find it, so I’ll try again next year. Do you enjoy watching the birds? It is so interesting and relaxing.
