They Knew Where to Go

Some folks throw out some seed, hopefully, only in situations like this.  And they wonder why the birds don't show up.  For me, it took a minute or two between casting some sunflower seed on the scratch ground and seeing a dozen or more ground feeders attack the goodies.  Birds need time to become aware of and mentally category resources.  And it is places like mine where food is dependably present that they turn to first when the weather tanks.  Today, our birds were rewarded with the expected food, cover and water and  I'll flatter myself hoping I gave them a little edge in surviving a tough day in the Piedmont.  And there will more tomorrow.  They can depend upon it!
