birdbed2015 We started out having one lone woodpecker visit us. The following year it found a mate. They have been having babies. I do not know how many we have here now. I have counted 3 different ones yesterday. I believe there is more. They are nesting because they are frantic to find food now. We feed the birds from the fall, through the winter and into the end of spring. Swedish scientist recommend  feeding the birds passed through their nesting period. Bird populations are declining scientist recommend to help them feed their young. Every year we seem to buy more bird food. We ran out of the fat food balls that the wood-peckers preferred food. They started pecking apart our tree stump for grubs. One day I looked out the window and saw that one of the woodpeckers had made a whole inside of the tree stump that it could stand inside of it. We were given chicken wire to place around the stump to protect it. We were told by our landlord that woodpeckers could destroy the tree stump in less than a week if we didn’t do something.   woodpecker They are relentless trying to find a way in under the wire. Hubby keeps plugging up the wholes they have found or made under the wire. We drove around town yesterday trying to find fat food balls for them. Everyone is out of them for the season. I found one store that had a few of them left. The woodpeckers have started eating the food ball instead. Next year we need to buy a little more bird feed to insure this doesn’t happen again.

THE INTERNET POST

Welcome to TIP. ABC, CBS, NBC and all the cable news channels are all bought and paid for and report what they are told to report. The MSM lies to and instigates people into political argument and gossip that leads to dead-end roads and distracts from the real issues. There is much better informational news reporting away from the Democrat and Republican tail-spinning arguments that are usually rooted in confusion and hate.. TIP is your alternative.
