My yard attacts a lot of birds and I feed all of them. I plant bushes that attract butterflies and I love to watch them. I have hummingbird feeders and I love to watch the hummingbirds eat in mid-flight. It is fascinating. I also have a hammock that is perfect for lazy afternoons.
But, I had to laugh when I read your post telling people to get a squirrel stopper for their bird feeders....Let me tell you about the on-going war I have with the squirrels in my front and back yard! I bought bird feeders that were guaranteed to stop squirrels from getting the bird seed, so I was excited.
At first the feeders worked really well, but one morning, I looked out my kitchen window and saw a squirrel sitting on top of one of the bird feeders and he was rocking it back and forth. There was another squirrel on the ground eating all the bird seed. After a few minutes, they traded places. I started laughing!
