If you are into Florida’s nature, you can see some of the most amazing bird wildlife from right outside your window. The tiny rainbow-colored Bunting Bird almost looks like a parrot at first glance (females are all green). I never saw one in my 14 years in Florida until I got a caged bird feeder.
Not only did the bunting bird arrive (see below), but it also attracts Cardinals, Hummingbirds, and even red-headed Woodpeckers who have a narrow neck and long beak. The cage keeps out the larger birds and squirrels, so the birds can feed in peace. I hung my birdfeeder right outside our dining room window in the front of our house. I see the birds when I leave/arrive and from inside the house. Note that the Bunting Birds migrate and go up north in May/June, so do it soon while they are here!
