Sweet Treat!

It was busy this morning at the feeders again! So much activity! A pine siskin was on the cotton ball I had put out yesterday, and I watched to see if she was going to start 'pulling' fluff out.
For an extended period of time, she was busy with something else. She had a seed. I couldn't believe all the attention she gave it. She picked it up, twirled it around in her beak, put it down and did that over and over again! I just happen to have my camera there, and got a bit of it for you to see.
Notice also, the handsome robin coming out of the background! Enjoy! and may your hearts be filled with the joy of the new spring songs in your backyards!

It's so neat to watch the robin walk up--I guess he/she ate seed from the ground?

Enjoyed the video. I have not thought about cotton balls, I assume for nesting.
