I no longer have a bird feeder on my deck...for good reason. We are in bear country. Bears will come up on your deck and swat down your feeder....then become a regular visitor. So, I put out a small amount of bread on a deck post every morning.
This pretty guy is a Steller Jay. He's a noisy fellow and will sit in the tree and squawk at me until I show up with the bread
Then there is this pesky little squirrel who likes to chase off all of the birds and have more than his share.
I love mornings
