The new bird feeder pole went up about an hour ago and it is already a resounding success! (at least until the squirrels an deer come along and screw it up for everyone) I just took a look through the bedroom window and our yard is suddenly the go to place in the neighborhood. All kids of birds! One thing of note, the blue jays are eating from the feeders. In the old days (prior to about 8:30 this morning) they would hang around on the ground beneath the feeders, but the poles they were hanging from were not stable enough for them to land on the feeders themselves. That’s not the case now! I’ve seen three of them partaking in the free grub!
Granted, I have’t been able to drive the spikes all the way into the ground, so the whole thing is probably coming down in short time. Who cares! I’m finally popular! WOOHOO!
