The benefits for attracting backyard birds around our homes are four-fold:
Backyard birds have a distinct social life. They build the most artistic and best equipped home. They entertain extensively and have many social gatherings. Their family life is exceptionally moral...though there are a few polygamists among them. Divorce is rare.
Birds have as many shades of character and disposition as there are types of people;
The prevailing note however, is one of happiness and good cheer. As a rule only sick birds are mopish.
You will discover all professions among birds - from fishermen to street cleaners.
Woodpeckers are storekeepers, yellow-hammers are owners of wine cellars.
Birds maintain labor unions and military organizations. They work out a marvelously well-ordered existence.
We cannot afford to overlook the aesthetic side of this question.
How much of our pleasure and happiness do we owe the birds directly for their intensely busy lives, the neatness and beauty of their dress, the perpetual joy of their songs?
Can you imagine a world without birds?

We had a bird about the size of a woodpecker which acted like a woodpecker on our tree two days ago. The most distinctive feature was a light pink belly.

This bird is about the size of a small cardinal. I have never seen it at a feeder but it comes to the bird bath. The photo is not the best but hopefully
