My mother likes Americana items so this stitch will be in good company! 

Yesterday we looked at perching birds, today we'll take a look at eating birds.   
The Goldfinches continue to swarm my nyger thistle bag and the two feeders with hulled sunflower seeds.

This feeder with a cylinder of nuts has delighted the jay and the Acorn Woodpeckers. 

See, the Scrub Jay is waiting his turn!

Free Bird looks great! I love how you have it with the other Americana items.

Oh how the birds love to eat! It's nice to see the Scrub Jay waiting his turn.

I love how your Plum Street finish came out -- it looks great! Love seeing the birds using the feeders too. So much fun! The Scrub Jay is a pretty bird -- I probably like it cause we don't have them here. lol!

What a great finish. I like how you've displayed it with those little chairs.

How many feeders do you have, I wonder?
