Prepare the feeders


The weather has been cold for the past few days and this reminds me to prepare my bird feeders. For the last two years here in Sofia I haven't seen even one single bird feeder. This is because the people here are not used to spare time for activities like feeding birds. The attention is on the problem with the dogs and cats. I don't think that this is not important ,but people should have 10 minutes every day to put some seeds on the window or something like that. I think that the main problem is the lack of talking about this at the schools. If someone has learned in young age the importance of taking care for those who need help ,he will find it normal when he is older. For me this is the key to draw the attention on our bird friends.

So prepare you feeders and lets try to help as much as we can !

The plumage is all black with a purplish green sheen, except for the white lower breast, belly, axillaries and undertail coverts.
