Mrs. Cardinal

With the snow we had Sunday, I could no longer resist putting out bird food.  I had not seen any cowbirds in a few days, though I did see starlings.
  I am not even sure I got back in the house before the birds were out there. 

Luckily, I have only seen a couple of cowbirds, and the feeder still had food in it this evening.  I think maybe now I can continue to put feed them.  I don't mind feeding a few starlings and cowbirds, but I don't want to put out the birdseed and them get it all. 

We always I spread a some seeds for the squirrels...there are only a couple that regularly. come unless it gets real bad.  And I don't even mind then.  The little songbirds do not seem to be bothered by them.
