Living on the Edge.......



The wind is blowing from the north and the birds find the best place to be on the south side of the feeder. Juncos and sparrows seem to be the only kind of birds at my feeder.  I did have a very large bird at the feeder picking off a bird for lunch.  I could see evidence of it as it pooped on the deck.  The feathers that remained on the floor of the deck gave me evidence that someone had eaten a bird.  I have seen kestrel’s tearing a small bird apart having its meal before in the summer, so I am thinking that was what it was. The amount of bird poop seemed to be more like the size of goose droppings but I am not going to even research that. The markings of the sparrows really seem more contrasting in the winter than they are in the summer.
