Feeding the birds
Posted by Sharkey
A lot of things are changing at the farm along with the season. For example, I discovered a long line of shiny barrels in the carport and I just had to know what they were for. I finally got Francesca interested in having a look and of course, we wanted to get in on the action. We later found out that the bird seed in the shiny barrels was brought over by a nice man named Jim Nordgren from the Bedford Audubon Society - we even heard that he was going to be on Martha's show today!
1 Francesca! Come into the carport and see all of these shiny new pails.
2 Honestly Franny! Stop scratching your back and come over here!
3 Oh, I see. These pails must be where all the wild bird food is stored. Martha likes to feed her feathered friends during the cold months.
4 Maybe we could help by filling some of the bird feeders.
5 I don't know - this scoop is kind of heavy.
6 Sharkey, I can't even reach this scoop. It's so far down. I think we're going to need some help.
7 Oh Gyurme - you make filling the feeders look so easy.
8 This looks like really good quality bird seed. There are so many large seeds and assorted nuts.
9 It even smells good. Gyurme, have you ever been tempted to eat the bird seed? Oh, I remember - you prefer cupcakes! Ha-ha!
10 Well Franny - another job well done. All the feeders are hanging and awaiting bird customers. And do you remember what also is attracted to bird seed? SQUIRRELS!!!!
