Such a simple thing - a $1 bird feeder from Dollarama in return for days of joy sitting outside with this little chappie!
To begin with, no birds seemed interested in this bird seed, but then, all at once, the whole balcony was filled with them! We intend to create a whole row of bird feeders aong the top of our balcony because as we sat outside this sunny fall Sunday morning, cup of tea in hand, huddled in our jim jams and house coats, this little guy really made us happy campers!
And he is fast becoming our friend - he doesn't mind the dog barking or playing with her bone. He didn't mind when I let out the most almighty sneeze (still haven't found the cure to this cold). He didn't mind when Luke dropped his phone on the balcony. Nothing seems to deter him from his aim: to eat all of the seeds before any other birds challenge him for it.
Every time we go out there, he flies over to say hello, often sitting on his little perch and looking at us, listening. I wonder what he makes of us?
