As winter has come early, with snow on the ground in late November and going to work in -4 degrees, my spirits have lifted by a new visitor to my garden bird feeder.
BTW: so far this has been the only nut feeder that the blasted squirrel hasn’t broken; it’s broken 3 of the wire-type ones this year. In fact it seems to have given up and goes to the nut feeder closer to the house, which is good because I get to laugh at it’s acrobatics in it’s desparate attempt to get to the nuts. Must photograph it some time when I’m not laughing too much. tee hee.
