They very trusting. Everything at our house is geared twords birds! I have about 1-200 Chimney Swifts that live in my chimney's all summer and have they're babies there. They are very specialized birds and are being threatened as large smokestacks and chimneys are being covered up. We keep most of ours open. Much fun watching them all tumble in to bed at dusk!

Now that made me literally LOL Todd. But Kev, I can see why they like it in your yard. It's beautiful and you are a gracious host hand feeding them like that. I have a bunch of little bird friends where we go for ice cream. I am close to getting them to eat pieces of cone out of my hand. I am going to make sure to go there as many times as it takes this summer. I will force myself to eat the ice cream just for them.  ;D

Our yard is full of babie birds this week! They're all fledging. Right now we're watching two babie bluebirds sitting on a feeder, not quite sure what to do. They'll figure it out when they get hungry! It's been a big year for newbies!

Your advice is duly noted Kevin! As for the babies, I could have had a nest full right outside my backdoor in my hanging basket but I'm a big meanie a put wooden skewers around the inside.

Sometimes there's two breeding cyles. Keep trying. Everything we do in our yard takes birds into consideration. They know when your on their side and will reward you with their presence! :)

I haven't noticed any of the birds in my backyard mating twice in a year.  I've got robins, blue jays, cardinals and sparrows.  They're all fat right now because they feasted on the cicadas. 

Besides the birds, I've got skunks, 'possums, deer, foxes, ground hogs, raccoons, chipmunks and squirrels (black and gray) back there too.  Lots of critters!!
