No stump table for me.

The birds got a spa instead.

It’s elevated, so the animals can’t get into it, and wired down so they can’t knock it over. I was kinda getting into the stump table idea, but I can’t complain.

I love my birds!

    Yup, they’ll appreciate your gift!

    I love them too, but don’t feed them in the summertime.

    Is that ice on the bird bath?

    I love the idea of a spa.

    I feed my birds all year so I can watch ‘Wild Bird TV’ while doing dishes or other tasks at the kitchen counter. I’ve also read that birds near backyard feeders have more young survive and thrive.

    I see your goldfinches are putting on their fancy yellow coats for spring too Suzanne!

    Where are the pesky squirrels? How do you not have squirrels raiding the feeder?

    I started feeding birds on my covered porch over a year ago & really enjoy it- three feeders at present. I can have “pets” without vet bills! My little bungalow has waist-high brick pillars on either side of the front steps & I’ve placed a 2″ flat plastic dish on one that I keep filled with water. Last week was the first time I saw one of my “children” bathing in it – a female cardinal must’ve thought it was a spa because she splashed around for about five minutes. So much fun to watch. My squirrels jump up to drink from the bowl too. I tolerate them & only torment them when they try to get into the feeders. Life is good in Kansas!

    Hey, Suzanne – the post about Jack that you noted on Facebook is not showing up on CITR. FYI.

    Nice bird station!

    If you don’t notice birds using the spa, you may want to put a rock or two in there for them to stand on. Sometimes the water is a little too deep for smaller birds. Just an FYI, that’s what I had to do. Have a great day, it’s actually gonna be a hot one today! :sun:

    Perfect! I’m sure the birds are very grateful too:)

    What? You have American Goldfinches there already? And I haven’t seen any here yet. I love those birds. I have 6 cats, so I don’t feel right putting up bird feeders for them to be murdered. So they have to eat what’s available in the yards and fields. They do snack on chicken scratch. I guess the cats think they are just small chickies then. That’s a great set-up you have. I can see why they love it there. Happy birds!

    we feed them all year too I grow a lot of Cone flowers black-eyed Susann’s Sunflowers (I save some of the heads for winter treat.
    I adore the sound of my birds in the summer watch the gold finch bath themselves on the water falls.
    Love your Spa gave me a great idea…

    I’m sure they’ll enjoy their spa.
