Just in time I got all the feeders in, as I do every morning and evening for years, except for the one I can’t. Usually empty by this time anyhow. He’s been here at night though having knocked it over several times. First sighting for us though living way in the country.
These kinds of things never happened to me when I lived in Chicago!
And, thank goodness they also haven’t happened while I’ve lived in Tennessee.
Love your set up Bob. My sister lives in Maryville TN and talk about how many birds you get north of her. Finally found their forever home from living abroad, and she’s trying so hard to attract to no avail like you for sure. I’m jealous of how many you get feeding!! Keep on posting fellow birdbrain. 😉
Yup, that’s worse than squirrels and raccoons. 🙂
Love your work Gary! Birds are my favorite to capture but also take tons of nature pics just on our 36 acres. Just love spring & summer living where it’s mostly winter. lol
