Not what I hoped for...

I've been trying to attract more birds to the back yard, so that I can get some pictures.

I know that the red birds like fruit and berries, so I took an orange that had been in the fruit basket for a while and cut it into sections.
I wired one half to a tree branch by the feeder and sliced the other half and put it under the feeder on the ground. The red birds seem to gather there.
Instead of red birds, I attracted this guy...

He took all the pieces and hid them somewhere for later....


  1. I guess he was hungry too! You've been tagged for a meme! If you want to play along just visit my site! Hope you're having a great Sunday!

  2. Same problem here. They're cute but what a pain in the patoot!

  3. Cute! I think those cardinals like suet balls (I could be mistaken - I'm no expert). Hummingbirds like sugar water, and they're great to try and photograph, though I don't know what part of the country you live in!
