Happy Thanksgiving!

This tufted titmouse was the first to discover the Thanksgiving bounty I put out for all of the creatures that visit my backyard. He loves is when I shell peanuts for him as you can see. I put some pomegranates in there too. I use the seeds as a garnish for my meals and never use it all. I did a google search to make sure this fruit is safe for wildlife and once I found out it was, I put it out there. It hasn't been touched yet.

Squiggy and his family got hazelnuts today as well as their own suet. They are stuffing themselves as I type this and I am hoping they get so full that they sleep for the rest of the day and leave my birds alone.

I had my own Thanksgiving surprise this morning and was it a doozy. The red bellied woodpecker who I spotted in my backyard a few weeks ago decided to pay me a visit. The picture is blurry because I was overly excited when I took it. HA!! He loves my suet so that makes making it worth the effort.

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with good food, family and friends. I am grateful to have discovered this wonderful blogging community and all you have taught me. I took your tips on better camera shots and it's working! Thanks everyone.

Kallen, I'm so glad your babies had a FEAST on Thanksgiving... I'm sure they are THRILLED.

Hope you and yours have a wonderful day also. Happy Turkey Day!

Thank you Kallen..and I love the red-bellied woodpeckers who also love nuts...I forgot to mention that you can use a water gun to scare the squirrels away without hurting them

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family on the inside, and all your fellow birdies outside!
