Our house warming gift from a dear friend (you know who you are!!!) was a whole big box full of bird feeding accessories. Feeders, suet, seed, chain to hang feeder, window hanger for feeder, etc. Each was individually wrapped for maximum enjoyment for the 3 year old who lives at our house and has always loved birds.
On a lovely, October day last week we hung the feeders – all within view of his seat at the breakfast table. As soon as we hung this one he stood back and waited, as if he expected the birds to come immediately.
I had time to go all the way into the house and come out again to take pictures and he was still waiting.
Update: this morning, just 6 days after hanging the feeders, Jesse spotted our first visitor. We were eating breakfast and he cried, “Mom! Lil’ bird!!!”
The bird was too quick and cautious for us to identify, but I’m sure we’ll see him again!
