Aunt B: Thanks! The birds are really into this idea of a driveway diner....especially some of the larger ones that have trouble landing on the feeders.

That is just the cutest story! You are so right, they do feed from the ground if there are no feeders. I had to chuckle at this one!!

Thanks everyone! The only problem with the "driveway diner" is that some birds don't stand out well against the gravel for pictures and they aren't quite as close to the house :-) I'm sure I will stick with a mixture. It is awfully handy though and I'm glad to know they like eating there if I'm in a hurry. I get lots of seed on the ground under the feeders and will eventually have a crop of small sunflowers growing there....which I leave and the birds love. I'll have to find some pics from last year. I probably have the "messiest" garden in the world and am the bane of my neighbors....but the birds like me :-)

What colorful birds came to your diner! You are right about the feeder....birds are not picky and will eat off the ground!

Hi Mary, Just trying to catch up after being away for a week, great posts this week and great photos, the Heron with the fish is an excelent capture, and the glass work in the exhibition is stunning. Mike.

Mary, I think you've found the solution to replacing your Dogwood tree! We have a lot of ground feeders also and when filling my feeders I always purposely spill a lot on the ground underneath them.
Beautiful buntings!

I just sprinkle the seed around too as most of it from the feeders lands there anyway. But I had to put up a "No take-aways" sign by the fruit. LOL!! They were just grabing it and flying off without allowing me time to even get a good look at them. Lovely post Mary. Hope the quilting went well.

Wren: I like that comparison :-)

Roy: I suppose so, but many of them are quite accumstomed to feeders. I think part of it is the fact they don't like my dead feeder tree.....they want the leaves to grow back that should be there.

Mary,

Its more natural for them to eat off the ground, thats the way they like it.

Much like buying a gift, and watching the recipient play with the box. :)
