We've had a lot of little birds at our bird feeder this year, they took their young ones here to show where the feeders are. So we got a one kilo log of beef tallow and seed mix for them, thinking it would last them a while.

Nope. We had to get 2 more kilos today as it was all gone in a week damned.gif Never seen that sort of bird gluttony before and I've always fed them.

Harsh winter ahead perhaps? hiding.gif

Hi Golden locks wave.gif

There were unusually few mosquitoes yes, although quite enough for me 13.gif I don't know what's up with the birds, maybe they know we'll be severely punished for this unusually warm July uhoh.gif

Hi Octo, yes, they may be taking advantage of the tallow to fatten up which is just a learned behaviour I would think.

I just put food out for the birds and I am now enjoying a choir of bird song and glimpses of migrant birds. cheers.gif

I put up a fresh kilo of food for them today. They have now finished 2 kilos of seed / beef tallow mix in a week damned.gif

They were sitting on the ladder outside the kitchen window looking in one morning when JR opened the window. They came to tell him they were out of food. chuckle.gif

Have you been digging through the archives again?

We moved out of that apartment about a month after the OP and far as I remember I had put out 7 kilos of bird feed before we left.

We don't have squirrels that bold here, you rarely have them that close to people

It's Springtime and my thoughts turn to gardening and my backyard...birds and squirrels too. I have to start thinking of what food plants to plant for the wildlife as my daughter wants to buy my house in the next few years and I somehow doubt she will be feeding the critters as I do.
