Solar illuminated bird feeder

Feeding wild birds or backyard birds is a great way to learn more about them. They are such fascinating and adorable little creatures. To be successful at the birds dinner table I have eventually learned what to give them to keep them coming.

Finally, after years of evaluating, longing and waiting, I got our new family member home last week after travelling 2000 km during 3 days.

My cosy little farm in Northern Sweden

So I finally did it. I have moved... (ahem ..yes, again).. but this time to the northern part of Sweden.
