I am sure you are curious to know what I was expecting, atleast I hope you are. Well, I was looking forward to getting some customers for my restaurant. Ha ha..... no, I don't have a real restaurant.
This is what I am talking about:
a practical and handy bird feeder.
A year back my brother hung up a couple of these feeders hoping to attract sparrows. And with very good results as you can see below:
And then I waited and waited and waited. I was ready to give up but Bro said these things take time. Birds are not very trusting by nature.
After almost five weeks, one afternoon when Hubby and I were having tea, I saw my guests arrive for the feast. I dare not go closer to the balcony so I snapped my pics right from where I was sitting which is why the pics are not very clear. And yes... a good blogger keeps the camera handy, even while having tea with hubby ....LOL.
I clicked a lot of pics hoping to get a good shot so please bear with me.
I think they are Red Vented Bulbuls, but I am no expert on birds.
Okay, now what's with the post title. Well, that is how I got these photos. I sneak towards the balcony on tiptoe (as much tiptoe as my XL frame allows....LOL), I peek from behind the curtains and click when they start pecking.
I had put up the feeders for sparrows, as their numbers are dwindling, but as long as some bird is enjoying it I am happy. One way of inviting nature into your home ...what say?
A post without crochet? Seems incomplete, so I will just put in a pic. This is for my new readers who may not have scrolled to the very end or should I say the very beginning of my blog.
Isn't that a sexy looking doily?! I enjoyed making it and I hope you like it too.
I will be posting about my rainbow mandala in the evening, so do come back soon.
