Garden Birdspotting Folksy Friday

One of the things I like about winter in the garden is the increased number of feathered visitors. They seem to be particularly greedy right now and their favourite nibble seems to be sunflower hearts. Luckily there’s a local petshop just up the road so it’s easy to restock quickly.

My Folksy Friday today shows some lovely items to represent a few of the birds that are regular visitors in my garden right now.

ACEO Redwing Print – Hazel Fisher Creations

Redwings are amazing birds, I have a Birdcherry tree that really attracts them, a flock of Redwings can  strip a berry tree in no time!

Sweet Robin fabric ornament – Clootielugs

One of my favourites is the cheeky Robin – I have a pair of them visiting at the moment. They spend as much time fighting off birds in mid-air for first dibs at the seed hanger!

Blackbird Droplet Earrings- Handmade Charlie

I spoil the Blackbirds with sultanas – they’ve learnt that if they sit on the fence outside the back door chirping really loudly, that will be their reward!

Posh Pigeon Cushion – Sixes & Sevens

Pigeons, they’re a bit too big for the feeder and none of the other birds get a look in whilst they’re eating, but it is funny watching them try and get into the tray by sliding down the curly metal arm.

Birdbox with Bluetit pyrography detail – London Clay Birds

The Bluetits are such cheery little birds and very polite – they flit down, take one seed and then flit off back to the nearest tree to eat it.

Goldfinch Birdseed Card – Kate Broughton

And then there’s the stunning Goldfinch. Such a beautiful set of bright colours. These little birds mostly visit in a pair and will sit either side of the sunflower heart feeder for minutes at a time.

Have a good weekend all. 🙂

    Aw I love watching the birdies in my garden too, they’re the closest thing I have to pets since Mr K’s allergic and we don’t have room for any.

    Funnily enough, I did a post about birdies in the garden (kinda) yesterday too! Great minds eh?

    Love the cushion,

    It really is a delight to watch the birds in the garden. I always feel much cheerier after watching their antics.
