Sparrows Tapping At My Window

(Photos from Flicker)
Remember the one-way film I somehow applied to the window at the balcony? We don't have a door to the balcony, just a window that we open and climb over to get out on our little 5x8 and enjoy the fresh air or sit in the sun.

Now we sit in the living room and watch all the birds eat from the three bird feeders I have out there. Sometimes a mama bird will get a baby bird in the feeder and feed the little squawker from the dish of food! That's so funny to watch.

Now they're eating me out of house and home. Hundreds of sparrows have spread the word, and they can eat 5# of bird seed in just a few hours! (They don't want the corn!)

And, when they are done, these tiny creatures of God come to the window and tap-tap-tap.

"Hey, lady. We're empty out here!"

I'm searching for a cheap place to buy bird seed near Columbus, Ohio. Any suggestions?

I find that walmart has the best price on bird seed. I like to buy the gourmet mix and put it 50/50 with the cheaper seeds.
Enjoy the birds.

We used to have birds spend quite some time flying against our window repeatedly and glaring at us from the feeder when it got low. Its amazing how much they think like us sometimes.
When I grow up I want to dance like that too!
