Tweety Bird at my feeder

This morning the cats were taking a special interest in the birds at the bird feeder so I glanced out the window and, to my surprise, saw a canary on my thistle feeder. I wish I had gotten a photo of it, but was afraid it would fly away while I was getting my camera.

I feel bad for the poor thing - cold weather is coming and I don't think canaries can stand much chill in the air.

Come to think of it, Joe looks a little like Sylvester!

I once owned a cat that looks just like Joe...and he really was called Sylvester!

Its really amazing what those small canaries can put up with, in regards to the weather. Years ago, a pair visited my bird feeder, also in the fall, and stayed through very cold weather.

I lost track of them in the following Spring.

Thanks for visiting...it will be great to see more of you!
