Bird feeder


Recently I have been feeding the birds on a feeder out in the front of the house. Mostly I have been getting common redpolls and chickadees the feeder but somtimes a bird that isn't in the bird book will show up. It stands about a foot high (when it is bending over eating), and is a brownish red color with some white on the wings. It comes out around the time that we do chores. The most we have seen recently of those birds is six at a time. We try and chase the big birds away to let the little ones eat. Look at the bottom of the post to find out what they are.

We have been doing homeschool in the mornings. It has been around 20 degrees here but a while ago we were haveing -20. Durring the cold weather we were getting 5-6 eggs a day from our eight laying hens. Today some friends are comming over and we will get ready to order seeds.


They were our turkeys
