Seeds for the birds


The birds are enjoying the dried seeds on plants in the front yard.

After it bloomed and then dried up, I left the Amaranthus "Hot Biscuits" standing so that it would provide food for the birds.

Every day in the early morning the House Sparrows and California Towhees have a nice meal, eating the seeds of the plant.

I took all of these photos through our window, so they aren't that great. But it's the only way I can get the shots from above.

Here is a house sparrow sitting in the dried Helianthus annuus“Delta Sunflower” shrub.

I don't know if there are many seeds remaining in the dried flowers, but the birds certainly like to sit on the branches and eat insects.
