How Many Birds Do You See?

This is the favorite hiding place for Oregon juncos, house sparrows, goldfinches, pine siskins and house finches. It's a mini rose bush that drapes over the fence from the neighbor's yard. When the hawks come around, they're too big to get into the thorny twigs to catch the birds.

We have a dogwood by our front window where they hang out. It's great for our cats, but it doesn't have thorns, so the hawks fly right into it and grab their dinner.
