The bird buffet or How do you handle a hungry flock?

I just couldn't resist those new images from Michelle Ward http://www.greenpepperpress.com/ with the eggs and the black birds and the sketchy nest. They arrived in today's mail and I opened them and had them mounted before dinner was on the table. I did one spread in my wings journal using every stamp on the plate plus a few others. What a great theme plate this is. I just love it! I know I will get lots of use out of it.
And speaking of birds, we have feeding stations for the wild birds and get a large variety and good quantities too. My husband Tim is a bird photographer extraordinaire and he enjoys having the birds so available for photo ops but they have been feeding their young and seem to be coming to Tim's birdie buffet in record numbers. The down side is they are costing a considerable amount to feed. It is wonderful have this Eden for the birds. We have meadows and ponds and lots of trees and brush coverage for nesting opportunities. Not all the photos on Tim's website are from the yard but you would be surprised at how many are. Check out his amazing photos on his site at http://www.timzphotography.com/ Some of my favorites are the Hummingbirds, the Flickers and the California Quail. Eek its late must go to bed. :)
