Maine is blessed with lots of wildlife and birds are part of the magic of Vacationland.
Loons on a Maine lake are entertainers thru the warmer months. But during winter months take off. Not returning until the spring. To land again on local Maine water bodies.
The ones that are big enough to allow a take off when the Maine loons have to leave again. Maine migratory game birds, ducks of all kinds populate the Pine Tree State.
Honking geese flying in V formation overhead the Maine countryside signal fall is waning and winter is approaching for another year.
So in the winter, the smaller birds that stick around Maine but have less to eat need a helping hand.
Feeders that you have to shoo chipmunks, squirrels and other predators away from are part of the fun to maintain the chirp cheep peep sounds in your side yard at a Maine home.
House cats are entertained and slightly frustrated as they watch from glass sun porches. As the buffet for birds, a diner round the clock is kept fuel of suet, seeds, feed for the winged patrons.
I enjoy watching Maine birds. But also capturing photos of the Maine birds feeding, interacting. Hummingbird feeders with sweet nectar are busy airports for refueling operations. Aas the whir, buzz of the hyper fast wings make the agile, colorful birds entertaining to watch eat. To observe darting, flit, diving and heading in every direction with much activity centered around the suet, seeds stocked in feeders. All because of the feeder filled with sunflower seeds, other goodies. For the birds set up in your yard to attract them, sustain them over the leaner, slim pickings for feed during the Maine winter months.
