I’m not exactly Ms. Outdoorsy Birdwatcher Woman, and mostly I find their incessant early morning tweeting an annoyance,, but I do like the idea of feeding the little guys (must be the Jewish mom in me). I have a copper bird feeder I bought for my husband years ago when we had a house with a little roof deck and yard outside D.C., but we moved to Boston before we had the chance to use it. I hang it on a severed tree branch in our Truro yard every summer. If I fill it with chunky seeds, we get a serious influx of crows, who then raid my sad little garden. (Who knew crows like cucumber?) Squirrels like to raid the feeder too. I’ve since switched over to a feeder that dispenses only skinny seeds, in hopes of attracting more pleasant feathered friends. Here’s a roundup of modern bird houses and bird feeders for your birding pleasure.
