If you feed them...

I thought maybe I would see if I could attract some birds to our deck by feeding them. My mom and dad feed them to. They have attracted quite a crowd at their house. Finches, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Snow Birds and several others I know nothing about. (Also, some big fat hungry squirrels!) As you can see, we have a woodsy back yard. I know they are out there. I wonder how long it will take for my full feeders of yummy seed to entice them to come up for a bite. The gentleman at the feed store told me it could take a week to ten days. I hope they come sooner than that. (So does the cat.)
There is a scripture that always makes me think of feeding birds. Matthew 6:26..Jesus says, "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" Wonder if my Heavenly Father is feeding some of His creatures by using me to do it? I think He is. So, I believe if I feed them, they will come.

I hope all the pretty ones find your feeders. I am sure Sinon and Sophie will enjoy the extra scenery
