A fews weeks ago Shirl at Shirl's Gardenwatch suggested peanut butter as a treat for the birds. Well, today we gave it a try. We smeared it on the tree bark; we left small piles on top of the rose arch and we put some inside a bird feeder.
It didn't last long!
The garden was full of hungry birds. This blackbird was so keen to get his share of the treat he attempted to hover at the feeder. Blackbirds don't hover! He took to flying by and grabbing a beakful. Thanks Shirl, it was a very good suggestion.
