Bird visitors to our garden- and then some!

Check out this video:

The little chipmunk you see in the video, I call “My little gardner”. When he is in the feeder he won’t allow any birds to feed. The birds have to line up and wait for him to get his fill. He stuffs his cheeks with sunflower seeds and then races about “planting” them in hanging baskets, potted plants, the flower garden and even in my seed flats. I have been finding random little flowering sunflowers all over my yard and bringing them in as cut flowers for my wife. He’s such a mischievous little fella!

There are so many hummingbirds coming to the feeder this year. I am putting out 6 cups of nectar every 4 hours. Below are flowers in my yard that the birds are enjoying.
