We had to cut a couple of trees down in the yard and the brush was piled up in the backyard for a couple of days. It was just enough cover to attract many of the ground feeding birds that are migrating through the area right now.
The brush pile was full of little sparrows like this Tree Sparrow.
And Fox Sparrows and Juncos. I threw some sunflower seeds in the pile and now it’s become a feeder. I was going to burn the brush, but now I think I’ll keep it around until Spring. Who knows what will be taking refuge in the brush this winter, it’ll be fun to watch!
