The lovely fruits of autumn

The birds have been giving the feeders a break the past few weeks.  They're getting plenty to eat directly from Mother Nature.  Like these gorgeous berries growing along the roadway.  Nature's harvest is ripening nicely for them so they're not so interested in eating the processed seeds in the feeders.  That's okay because we go slightly broke in the winter months keeping the feeders full for the little hungry guys.  I hope they enjoy their fall feast while it lasts!

I'm not sure what kind of shrub that is, but I did see a mockingbird on it one day so I'm assuming he was picking berries for himself. :)

They are gorgeous. Is it a tree? Wouldn't these look great in some Christmas decorations too?

I know what you mean about going broke feeding the birds - especially in the winter when there's nothing else out there for them.

I just filled my bird feeders up 4 days ago. They are already empty! I think I buy around 3 or 4 50 pounds bags of sunflower seeds just in the Winter months. I also buy 12 to 20 suet cakes too! I love my birds and they are very beneficial having them around. They eat up all of those nasty bugs in the Spring! So, to me they earn their wages in seed for the Winter!

Have a Great Day!

I agree with everyone else -- the red berries sure stand out against the green leaves. So pretty! Great photos, as usual. Thank you for sharing with us!
