Posing for Peanuts

I usually buy "shelled" peanuts for my feathered friends.
It's less work for them,
and they get more bang for their bite!!
 
For myself, I get them "In" the shell,
it's cheaper and I kinda like "working for it" a little.
 
I ran out of the shelled ones, so I shared mine...
 
My Titmouse seemed a little surprised...
 
checking twice to be sure he was at the right house.
 
It didn't take long for him to make his selection and be on his way!!
 
The pretty Blue Jays didn't mind either...
 
picking was super quick and easy,  
 
he posed long enough for a good picture and flew off!

  6. So do they fly up on top of your roof to open them? We have birds opening pecans and walnuts this time of year on our roof. Do I dare tell you how many times I have went to answer the door thinking some one was knocking. I think I would buy them that kind just to watch their funny faces. I love that look on the Titmouse's face.

  11. We have a peanut feeder that we put whole peanuts in. It's a real hoot watching the titmice fly off with their catch. Sometimes they drop them and turn around and dive down to get them. The blue jays, on the other hand, just grab and go. You got some great pics!

  19. Such sweet photos! And I love your comments. That peanut is about as bit as the little titmouse, but he is obviously not going to let that stop him! The birds must love that Debbie's house. :-)

  26. Wonderful and sweet photos of the birds and their peanuts. I leave out peanuts for the squirrels. The birds get bird seed. - This morning I had a ton of crows out front grabbing up peanuts though.

  27. These are great! I bet it's a bit easier for the jay than the titmouse. That's a big meal for the little guy.
