  1. Bird food

    it can be expensive to feed birds especially the jays and doves and magpies and blackbirds because they come in large bunches. i found over the years that the big birds like the grains and cracked corn and the scratch grains which is mixed grains for chickens. so i buy cracked corn and scratch grains at the local feed store cheaper a lot more than mixed bird seed. and they love it i paid 8 dollars for a 50 lb bag for them the other day. and they emptied the feeders the same day. use any kind of hopper feeder that they can perch on. My sister just uses a metal pan and hangs it from a branch with rope on each side
  2. Loose Parakeet

    what worked for me was a box held up on one side with a stick and a cord running to the porch and some goodies under the box and when he went under the box to eat i pulled the cord and the box fell down over him

  4. What is the best photo site?

  5. Holes in bottom of thistle sock

    i have both magpies and scrub jays that will fly up to a sock or a suet cage and hold on for a few seconds and jab at the sock or suet and then fly down to the ground and eat the stuff that falls out. two or three magpies can almost empty in minutes by taking turns stacking the suet cage and the scrub jay will hold on to the sock and jab at it. so i have been putting the thistle in a feeder that only lets small seeds and thistle to flow out into the tray on the bottom

  9. Who am I?

    it is a guinea fowl oops somebody beat me. they are usually escapees from somebodys farm or pet or in some cases they are released on hunting club or forest land when i lived out at the farm we would order baby chickens and also get a few other chicks such as guineas or turkeys ect. Guineas are great watchdogs as they screech when a stranger comes around. Mine used to go up to a neighbors place and she would call me to come get her. they eat lots of insects and weed seeds
  10. Plant Identification Thread

    these are called fishhook cactus here because of the shape of the spines. they are found on the red rock canyon rims in the four corners. this one i dug on my family farm in southeast utah probably 20 years ago or more and has been in a plant pot in my backyard. it blooms every spring and the blooms last several weeks.
