We all know that the world doesn’t run on the schedule that we want it to. It needs to catch up with us or get out of the way. I think that may be one of the reasons that I like birdwatching so much. It makes me SLOW DOWN.
Sometimes I even have to remind myself on the advice I give all of our new customers when they come in to start feeding birds. It can take some time when you are just starting. Birds take time to come to your feeders and more varieties will come with more time.
I was reminded of that this morning when I looked out the window and saw about 12 American Goldfinch feeding - not at the same time, the feeder only has 6 ports - on my Nyjer feeder. I put that feeder out about 5 weeks ago, and just started getting a couple of males about a week and a half ago. What a site to see - it really makes me want to try out one of our Finch Flockers. It would be so cool to see 20 finches feeding at the same time.
So take time to slow down today -
