Bringing Birds to My Backyard

Expanding more on my nature quest, I decided to buy a bird feeder. There were a few too many choices and decisions for me, so I selected a “beginners” feeder, chosen because it’s in my budget.

I’ve had it for a week. Total birds to date: 0.  (At least as far as I can tell by the food not eaten; since I’m not typically home during the day.)

Although, it did attract this squirrel’s attention:

which highlighted an error in installation. Though the feeder is designed to “close” when a squirrel gets on it, I have it hanging so low that the squirrel doesn’t even have to get on it, he can just hang out on the deck railing and chomp away.
