A few weeks ago, we made a small purchase that is having a big impact on our backyard. We picked up this Cedar birdfeeder at Kmart.
For the first week or so, it sat full of seed and completely untouched. We wondered why it was being ignored by the Brooklyn avian community.
And then one day the squirrels found it.
The birds followed.
We even had a special visitor in the form of a bright red cardinal visit a few times.
So its been quite a study in urban wildlife in our backyard lately.
But guess what animal is enjoying this the most? (excluding Mr. Limestone who just just so happens to have taken all of these photographs. National Geographic, he is waiting for your call.)
Our very own yard patrol, Big Cat.
That bird feeder has added hours of enjoyment to his daily routine.
'Cool it with the camera, those birds will never see me behind this plant!'
(If you will note, my cat doesn’t have poor grammar or punctuation like those other internet cats!
In fact, he did his thesis in the feline liberal arts of napping and begging for food.)
Alas, they aren't that easy to catch. The minute Big Cat puts one paw outside, the birds high tail it out of here.
