Kindness Bandit: Natural Neighbors
When I move to a new place I like to be neighborly. I thought that I would start with our closest neighbors, those of the animal kingdom. I heard that the woman who lived here before us (for the past 30 years) has been a feeder to the birds and squirrels. I read up on feeding birds and it seems that bird feeders do not interfere with a bird's ability to forage for their own food. I have no idea about squirrels and their abilities (you may recall my feelings about squirrels- aka nature's devil). So it is with a clear conscience that I set out to be neighborly to the animals with whom I share a space.
We've put up a hummingbird feeder, a regular bird feeder and a little bird house.
