    What a nice song – you know that I like Peggy Lee. Bright and sunny today, though cold. Tons of activity today on the birdfeeder – mostly chickadees and titmice, a few cardinals and sparrows, and an occasional nuthatch. A mockingbird that visits the water bowl, which I have to change every few hours due to freezing. Out of suet, need to get some for the woodpeckers. Tractor Supply usually has good prices on 10-packs of suet. Cooking up some split pea soup with the leftover Christmas ham to start off the New Year (yummy and warming)!

      Spaceman,
      The first time I ever heard Peggy Lee was when my mother got a HiFi from my dad, and on one of the records was a few Peggy Lee songs. I’ve liked her since.

      I have chickadees, nuthatches, gold finches and titmice. I feed them sunflower seeds and thistle. I bought that 10 pack of suet at Agway when it was on sale.

      My mother always made pea soup from the ham. She’d freeze some for me until I visited. After she died, I found some of it in my freezer. It was delicious!

      Had a couple of bluebirds at the feeder this morning! First I have seen in a long while. And got some suet yesterday. Have plenty of downy woodpeckers that stay year round that will feed on suet. I can always tell when they are nearby – they give a double cluck as they move about.

        Spaceman,
        I never get bluebirds. I haven’t ever seen on the cape. Maybe if I buy worms for the feeder they’d drop by.

        I also have plenty of downy woodpeckers. One of them poked a hole in my Little Library. He got inside and couldn’t get out. One of the kids in the neighborhood told me. When filling the hole, I found two more attempts.

        You are right about bluebirds – I see on their range map that they are quite scarce up that way. Very pretty birds. They inhabit and readily nest in this area (there is a standard bluebird wooden nesting box that people use to attract). They prefer living near a open meadow and the nesting boxes are often placed on fence posts out in the countryside. I built a couple boxes, but my backyard is mostly wooded and never have had any luck with attracting them (rats). However you are blessed with orioles; the only time I see them is when they pass through the area briefly (rats).

        Spaceman,
        The orioles like oranges and grape jelly. I have a couple of feeders for them. I also have a hummingbird feeder, and I have seen some but not too often. I was thrilled watching it flitting.

        I have a huge back yard, but the feeders are off my deck or hanging on branches near the deck. The bird bath is below the deck on the ground. I love sitting on the deck and having the chickadees fly over my head on the way to the food. They are the birds which are most often at the feeders.

    Don’t see goldfinches in the winter here, which is is unfortunate because of the color they add. They show back up in the Spring. But not much is prettier than a bright red cardinal contrasted against leafless trees.

      Spaceman,
      The goldfinches are all so pale with the males now as colorless as the females. I agree about the red cardinals and I’ll add Baltimore Orioles to that list of colorful birds I get in my yard. I can see the big feeders from my kitchen window, and I never mind doing dishes and watching.

    It is a wonderful song. This is the first time I have heard it. Peggy Lee has always been one of my favorites. I also like the visuals.
    Thanks,
    Lori and Cookie

      Lori,
      There were a few different singers of this song, but I liked this one the best!

      Kat and the kids!
