For the past few years I've taken our tree, stand and all to a spot on the deck where our feeders are located. The chickadees make great use of it as a place to open seeds, tree sparrows routinely feed below the tree and it does offer some safe haven from predators. And just several yards from our viewing window it offers an opportunity to observe behaviors from the comfort of being indoors especially during these sub zero mornings. There's something satisfying as well about extending the value and use of this locally harvested resource. Not as exciting as the snowy and hawk owls so many of you are spotting but neat to see how quickly species adapt to this new object in their midst. From Derby.
