Who here puts out feeders for birds, squirrels, deer, etc.? About a week ago, I tried attaching a suction cup feeder to the window of my bedroom, but was unable to keep it stuck to the window. So, instead, I decided to fashion a crude plank feeder. Basically, I took an old bulletin board and propped it under the window to my bedroom. This let a bit of a draft into the room, so I shoved towels and styrofoam in the gaps. Unfortunately, the window was still free to slide and couldn't hold the weight of the heavier birds, so I used a twenty-pound hand weight to balance the other side. The weight sat precariously on the window ledge, so I pushed up an old television set to keep it in place. A bit of a hassle, but it worked. Here's a photo of our first visitor: http://www.astroskwurl.net/squirrel.JPG" In the past few days, the feeder has attracted chickadees, titmice, blue jays, and juncos. Melissa got a great shot of a chickadee: http://www.pbase.com/peabody/image/71551951" Also, here's a nice one of a cardinal in a nearby tree: http://www.pbase.com/peabody/image/71497897"
