I'd laid out the treats and 10 or 12 Seagulls immediately showed up.
I moved to the curb, so they couldn't land and had to circle
Right then a Starling made a menacing high speed pass overhead.
With that the Gulls left
No sooner had I sat down... Beauty landed.
Looks like her Dad is keeping a close eye over Her
Starlings and Sparrows often feed together. No Gulls get our Bird with protectors like Us.

Nobody Brags up and Shows off the Medicine Sparrow better than the Great Stone Dancer.

This Bird is incredible. I've got lots of video to show off and brag about.

Then when the Bird watchers show up.... They won't have to worry about seeing this beauty... Yup! Now We can all Spectate!

I'm sure the Spirit bird will be impressed.

Yesterday -- Monday morning Jojo was putting the chairs and tables outside just before opening.
She said the birds were really buzzing around her this morning.

I said it was the daylight savings time change ... fall back etc. She was getting a scolding for being late
Saturday night the time got set back and Sunday the coffee shop is closed. So Monday????
She will be forgiven..

Just uploaded video of Joy eating Elderberry
She can't take the jab but Elderberry is what Hippocrates cured the first pandemic with.
Along with Weed and a bevy of other herbals

I saw a Hawk across the street on the lower branch of a tree..
I started walking toward it... till it flew off
It's not just about feeding but guarding too.
Don't touch Our Joy

Gonna move the feed spot a few meters down the street.
Some patrons have complained about the mess.
Nobody sits outside besides me and the rest of the birds.
Some people love some people hate.

So to be honest to myself I am changing coffee shops.
The patrons have changed since the pandemic... Few of my friends are here.
Cheers was frequented for the friends you find there. They are all gone

Sparrows and Starlings are considered invasive species...
I think it's time that they were BOTH naturalized species.
Farmers and Orchardists have been slaughtering them for decades.
Stewards of the land???

A hawk came by yesterday and today.
Feathers and a sparrow gone.
I'll have to find a safer place to feed our Sparrow

The hawk and stuff has been posted

Later video showed our beauty.. Wow am I happy

Even more seagulls this morning..

I was in the middle of the highway scaring them away..
The sparrows knew and continued feeding.
People probably think I'm crazy and they are right.
Crazy about that bird.

I'll get video of the tomorrow
Gonna freeze some marshmellows and gun them down with a slingshot..

Only if they get too close... this should be fun and a great way to protect the feeding site.
