Something’s Missing!

There’s actually two things missing here. The obvious one, of course, is the bird feeder. The not so obvious one(s) are all the birds that would be here if the feeder wasn’t missing.

As I mentioned near the end of the post “Opening Day at Cat Frenzy”, sometimes we have sick birds that come to visit. When that happens, the feeder needs to be taken in for a while to keep the sick birds from infecting all the other birds.

That’s exactly what happened this week. Several sick Pine Sikins and Lesser Goldfinchs were hanging around, so Jody took the appropriate action. She took the feeder inside and thoroughly disinfected it.

Now it’s just a waiting game. She needs to make sure the sick birds are not coming back before she’ll put the feeder back out again.

The other birds aren’t too happy about the situation but it’s for their own protection (even though Jody still scatters some seed around the deck for the healthy birds that stop by).

Cheers – DJD
