You can afford peanuts?
Bless you. I can't get over what they are selling for these days.
Seems like my dad stopped buying the peanuts as of late. We've always been going to this supply store and buying stuff like that in bulk, bird seed and corn and all of that, but right now we're just putting out sunflower seeds. We've been feeding the birds for years and putting out fresh water in the summer. Just makes us feel good to help them out a little bit.
Lots of "common" birds like sparrows and doves come by, but then we've got some real pretty ones too, like cardinals, blue jays, finches, cow birds, nuthatches, etc. The occasional woodpecker (actually, haven't seen him lately).
