I did not cut all the flower stems. I left Echinacea seed heads for birds. Verbena and Sedum are still standing proud in their last moments. I took these pictures on a frosty morning two days ago.

It is time to prepare bird feeders and food for our feathered friends. Feeders should be placed away form cats. I usually hang them on the terrace where they are at hand for regular cleaning and feeding.
Strange things happened yesterday. I found one Blue Tit behind the radiator in the bed room! Unfortunately, dead. The bird probably got in during the day when the window was opened. I haven't heard it or see it when I closed the window, but I noticed tiny drops on my bed linen and window! I found it during the window cleaning. I was so sorry fort the poor thing.
My brand new bird feeder.
What food I mix for my birds? Common species visiting the feeder are sparrows, robins and the three species of tits -mountain,blue and great tit. I use to leave them dried bread pieces, raisins, peanuts and sunflower seeds.
Jay and crows still find the walnuts I haven't collected.
Sparrows come in great number chasing away tits and robins. They also occupy the birdbath. But, not for a long time - yesterday morning the water was frozen!
