I put a wreath on my door thats made from eucolyptus plant leaves. I heard something odd at my door, and see that birds are attacking the "berries" on them. They are not real, so Im hoping they dont get sick. Ive spotted a blue jay while in my car at it and now a red throated bird with a frilly top. Woodpecker maybe. I think Ill remove those berries or whats left of them.

I mentioned this on AOR before. I put out three dried corn cobs on the front door for a Fall decoration. For three days running I got hit and run knocks on my front door only to find no one there! I laughed it off thinking it was the neighbor kids and their friends as the boys were 9 & 10! The fourth day I happened to be sitting in my kitchen with bow window next to my front door. After the rapping I noticed a large bird flying away!

Speaking of “The Raven”! lol!

No wonder it sounded familiar!  Now I remember you saying that. 

Amazing creatures, these birds. I happen to love them and those blue jays are mean but beautiful. Just now I saw about 6 to 8 sparrows hiding in a large shrub (about 5.5 ft tall) in the backyard from my kitchen window. I have a feeder by the garage and had just filled it. They were peeping out taking turns at the feeder. Cute!


I put out whole peanuts in the shell and suet in feeders in my large maple tree!  I also feed the birds from platform feeders on my deck! I live near an open field out back so I have 22 types of birds including woodpeckers and hawks!

I love my wildlife... squirrels included!


Peanuts! That is a great idea. We do have squirrels and they will compete. Ill see if I can add suet or use a diff kind of feeder. 


My peanuts are in a long yellow cylinder with holes so the peanuts shells can’t be removed by the squirrels! The woodpeckers hammer until they can get the peanut inside!

Red bellied,downy and hairy woodpeckers!

I have red headed woodpecks laughing high in my 80ft locust trees but for some reason I haven’t been successful in luring them to a feeder!


That's amazing. Ive seen woodpeckers, cardinals, bluejays, robins, and many I dont know the name for. A beautiful little yellow bird was seen by me late fall.  

   Once, I saw a hawkish looking bird on a neighbor's bush grabbing some creature. It was huge, and was rare.

We had that happen when we had up our Autumn wreath.

The birds shit all over it, so we had to throw it away.

They figured the wreaths are a nice nest that you have donated to them.
