Visitors

2 Jan

We have bird feeders on the patio. The sparrows in particular sift through these, tossing aside the seeds they do not care for. These unwanted seeds end up on the patio and provide food for the ground feeding birds, like robins, and also this fine pair of visitors we had this morning, a cock pheasant and a grey squirrel. Neither are native species, and I would rather like to discourage the squirrels in particular. This one was fearless, staring me out as I tried to shoo it away. The pheasants are decorative, if brainless, and are refugees from the local shoot.
