February is Bird-Feeding Month.
I love bird feeders but we’re not supposed to have them because of bears. (I remember visiting Pat Gaffney once, and watching her yell out at the window at a huge black bear that was snacking on her bird feeder. The bear ignored her, which isn’t easy to do with Pat.) I keep thinking if I can hang a feeder high enough on the house away from trees (we have a lot of trees), maybe it would work and I could watch the birds again, but bears climb, and the idea of waking up and seeing a bear looking in my bedroom window while he snacks is not attractive. And then, of course, there are the squirrels.
Feed the birds because I can’t. Thank you.
(It’s also Library Lovers Month, but that’s pretty much all year round here, so I went with the birds.)
