I like spoiling those happy little feather balls before my office window. After a trial period, in which I tried to seduce them to come closer to my window, I now installed some more high-tech equipment:
It seems to work pretty fine, as the regular visits of great tits (and occasional squirrels) continue. With the increasingly cold weather, even more birds seem convinced to visit me and my generosity. I ticked off blue tits, long-tailed tits, robins and even some goldcrests.
Although my fancy supply mechanism looks perfect, most birds still seem to prefer the cheap stuff. I don’t know why, although they showed furious picking behavior towards the plastic cover (no, my fierce friend, you’re not getting anything by just hitting the plastic!). Maybe it is all just a little bit too complicated for their tiny bird-brains.
Nevertheless, I am waiting excitingly until it starts freezing, because then the feathered traffic will only increase!
These and some other cute pictures joint the picture gallery ‘Animals’ on the right of my blog. I strongly recommend taking a look!
