I was at the supermarket the other day when I spied what looked like a big stack of small flat cages next to another big stack of what looked like Rice Krispies’ treats. Naturally curious, I investigated. The “Rice Krispies’ treats” were actually suet, a block composed of fat, berries and seeds used to feed birds. The little “cage” was a feeder to hold the suet.
When I noticed that the Audobon Society was distributing the feeders, I instantly thought of my grandmother. She had a thing for birds. Nana wasn’t a birder per se, she never traversed the great outdoors counting yellow bellied sapsuckers, but she did keep two bird feeders well-stocked. She kept a pair of binoculars on her tv. So, whenever her little feathered guests stopped in for a snack, she could check them out in greater detail.
Given how cold the weather has been, I thought the birds might need a little help. So, I bought the suet and its’ holder. It was only a few dollars for both. I think Nana would approve.
Love and Blessings to All,
