Good friends, Alan and Sylvia are Cardinals. Ian and Sylvia are not. BC in the Big Lou is a Redbird fan tried and true. I am not. Our two cardinals spent the day with us during the storm. Here the male is hanging in there against quite a few odds. They like the suet and the seeds that the chickadees throw all over the place. Gosh, those little birds are messy. The feeders and suet were busy all day. The worse the weather the more activity. The day of the storm loads of restaurants and coffee shops all over the city closed early for the day. Birdman's drive-thru feeders were open for business. The US Postal Service thrives on the motto "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."
During Tuesday's storm, the mail was brought to its knees.
They ceased deliveries here.
But not my feeders.
Will you take peanut butter on that suet?
Coffee or tea?
Your picture looks like a painting . I'm always wondering where do those poor little go when there's a big storm ... and squirrels , mice ..ReplyDelete
One thing is certain: You deliver!ReplyDelete
Who really needs the mail anyway? In my experience, the only thing that comes by post are bills.ReplyDelete
Love your cardinal. We got a dusting of snow overnight, but no colorful birds.
Birds can be so active on snowy days. Glad you had the suet (and camera)!ReplyDelete
You go, uh, BIRD-man. :-)ReplyDelete
Those birds need to head south. I love this photo.ReplyDelete
I received three boxes yesterday. The postman arrived during a little snow storm with my new computer. Never tried peanut butter in my life. Need to go to the store now and buy some new bird seeds.ReplyDelete
You have lived up to your namesake! Kudos to you. That storm must have been quite miserable. But the birds live on. Yeah, Birdman!ReplyDelete
i feel bad for the postal, package and paper deliverers. what a tough job at times!ReplyDelete
glad you feed your visitors well!
Oh, that poor little guy. I'm so glad your feeders are there for the feathered friends who hang around for the winter. I hope those feathers are warm!ReplyDelete
The weather looks ferocious!ReplyDelete
My mailman came in today to warm up a bit before heading out into the cold wind. He had just slipped on some ice and fallen and was not happy but was still continuing on!ReplyDelete
I'll happily accept tea. I'll sit by the window and watch cardinals in the snow. I won't make a noise. You won't even notice I'm there.ReplyDelete
We had a snowstorm today. It lasted all of 30 minutes. Our first snow in oh, my, ummm, two years?
Nah. Gimme a hard one into the gap in right field.ReplyDelete
You are a good man my friend! My cardinals don't have to endure such extreme weather so I guess they don't know how good they have it.ReplyDelete
Good for you BIRDman. You are well-named. xxReplyDelete
I would rather the postal workers stayed home safely than try to deliver meaningless junk mail and get hurt.ReplyDelete
I wish we had them here but they never visit.ReplyDelete
Poor guy! Wait. I thought cardinals went south for the winter. Arizona's the only place I've seen them. In spring. Glad you're taking care of them. I suppose they're not very good tippers, though.ReplyDelete
Oh well done Birdman, someone has to keep a food supply going for these wee lovelies :)ReplyDelete
