Platform feeder a big Hit…

I got really annoyed with the deer coming through and chowing down on all the bird feed that I had just put out, so Jim made me this simple platform feeder and we mounted it on the tree high enough to be out of reach for the deer. The deer would lay out in the back field and when they would hear me go out the door they would show up within minutes.

Boreal Chickadee

The Boreal Chickadees took an instant liking to the platform.

Red-breasted Nuthatch

As did the spunky Red-breasted Nuthatch.

Hairy Woodpecker

This female Hairy Woodpecker had to take a look. She likes peanuts too!

Black-capped Chickadee

Here’s a good comparison of a Black-capped Chickadee and a Boreal Chickadee.

Boreal Chickadee

The Boreal Chickadee overall has a smoky brown shading. Notice the brown cap.
