Photo Share: Hungry birds

If you use fresh seed there should be lots of hungry birds feasting at your feeders. But when every meal counts, birds can't waste their time on filler seeds or stale food that isn't full of fat and protein.

It's estimated that only about 20% of a backyard bird's daily energy intake comes from feeders and because we haven’t had a lot of snowfall in Michigan, there still might be a lot of natural food sources available.

If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it on the Friday Photo.
