The Forbidden Bird Feeder

Shhhh ... don't tell anyone.

I have a bird feeder on my patio.

My apartment complex doesn't allow bird feeders. But I couldn't bear to be without one any longer.

So far, I have seen chickadees at the feeder and juncos nibbling on the spilt seeds on the ground.

The squirrels are enjoying the spillage, too.

I have a water bowl for the squirrels. When it is empty, they clang it loudly in protest.

You-know-who is enjoying the show.

Everyone should be able to have a bird feeder outside the window. I am happy you got one. I sure won't be telling the manager! I love the blue bowl with water in it. Also, love seeing the table out on your patio.

Hugs, Cory

I wonder why they don't allow bird feeders? Is it because of the "mess"? Looks like Charlie has his eye on a poor little birdie... No way, Charlie!!!

I am not telling a single soul! You deserve to have a bird feeder:) You certainly have a sweet bird watcher! Enjoy your evening my friend! HUGS!

I feel your pain! I'm afraid to put one up here at the apartment. We can put one up but I'm afraid the neighbors would not appreciate the bird droppings. Love your water bowl for the squirrels! We have squirrels who lay on the ledge of our half wall. Super cute! Have fun enjoying nature!


I WON'T tell anyone! I guess they don't want a "mess" that the seed could make! Keep your "tracks" covered and enjoy the birds!

I love your pictures. And why would they ban bird feeders? That makes no sense to me at all!

Good for you!! I'm sure that your kitty isn't the only one enjoying your generosity. Do you think if you planted a fuchsia you might get some cute little hummingbirds?

Thanks for feeding the birds!

Good for you -- good luck with the sneaking -- I won't tell! Too funny about the demanding squirrels!

Ooooo. A secret bird feeder. Shhhh! I promise not to tell. And tell Charlie birds are friends, not food. :)
