The old saying goes...

The birds are eating us out of house and home! It's not quite that bad but it seems I'm going through more food this winter than in any previous in the 4+ years we have lived in our current home. I am putting out bark butter and grape jelly on a daily basis and I estimate I'm going through about 5lb of bird seed every week not including millet and nyjer. The orioles are providing us with great entertainment and the lone siskin is taking no nonsense from the very aggressive goldfinches who are competing for his perch on the nyjer feeder.
