I was heading through the kitchen on my way to take a shower when I spied it. A bird was feeding from my sock of thistle!
I quickly dashed upstairs, put the wrong lens on the camera and headed onto the deck to take some photos. The bird had other ideas. His departure came within ten seconds of my arrival. I got one pretty crappy shot (above).
The bird was beautiful. He was yellow and looked just like the bird stenciled on the sock. Maybe he thought it was a mirror? I’m not a bird expert but I’m pretty sure it’s a miniature bald eagle puppy. Maybe not?
I am really looking forward to more birds. If you know any please tell them the Fox house is the home of the bottomless thistle sock.
I hope no squirrels are reading this!
