A Visit from Beaky


Our resident backyard cardinal’s name is Beaky (since he goes and “beaks” at Carla’s window). He’s one of our most reliable feeder customers, but lately, he’s been branching out and acting like what my mom calls a “real bird.” I left some sunflowers to go to seed, and he discovered them. Now he sits on top of the biggest flower and reaches underneath to pluck out seeds. He says it’s a lot more work than pigging out at my feeder!
