Bird seed! We got the seed from big cans, and scooped it with little cans. We carried it outside with the basket. Auntie Erin had to shovel, and I spread the seed. We were careful going outside because the roof — icicles and snow. They slide off.

Erin took the high up feeders down so we could fill them. She used a ladder.

My favorite is the mixed seed. I spread it on the ground.

We saw chickadees!

Now I’m going upstairs. Me and Erin are going to listen to birds.

We are filling the feeders. It’s a balmy November morning, maybe already 50°F and due to rise into the 60s. Not really critical, for the birds, this feeding. But we got up early, strangely for us, so why not.

Mama: “What do you like best about feeding the birds?”

LittleBirder: “The way the seeds fall and sprinkle all over.”

And here I was thinking about the birds we see, and he likes the cascading sound and feel. Pay attention to the now, MamaBirder. He is!



I made it!
