Birds feeding Birds

There are a bunch of birds all around the birdfeeder going at it. There is only about 2 inches of birdfeed left in it and they are going crazy! The thing is swinging all over the place and they are pushing each other off the thing, hanging upside down and flipping around it. I sat there watching as they sprayed the seed all over the place just memorized with the craziness of it.

Then I noticed that there were many more birds all over the deck eating the seed they had just sprayed everywhere. So I tried to sneak up on them to take a picture, screen door, dirty glass door, oh well, you get the idea.

It was interesting to watch though, because they were joined by a squirrel and a chipmunk and nobody seemed to mind. Sorry, I got so wrapped up in watching them the only picture I got was of the chipmunk in the plant 😛
