Bird Chaos

I just put some peanuts out and within seconds, the Scrub Jays are flocking to them! Somehow they sense that there's a new food out there and go crazy. They're fighting over them like I'm the only person in the whole town that feeds them!

I go through about a bag of seed a week and then when I put out special treats like peanuts and bread, they act like they've never eaten before!

Look at all this chaos I've caused :)

The early bird...

This morning it was so cold that there was a blanket of frost all over. But that didn't keep away the American Robins. There were several males hopping around on the frozen grass. It looked like they were actually getting a few worms. The field guide says they are attracted to birdbaths and bread crumbs. I just put some bread out around the feeders and also filled up the bath. It was so cold that it actually froze solid!!
