Aunt Sarah brought us a new bird feeder. There is a fantastic birch tree right outside the kitchen window with a branch perfect for hanging the feeder. Daniel and Sarah filled it last week and hung it up. The birds love it. There are LBJs* and LGJs** and I think we’ll need to get a bird book soon. They emptied the feeder in about two days and having been coming back in the hope of a refill. I think we’ll wait until there is a food shortage as we are currently in a time of flowing milk and honey (if you are a bird). It will also be better to have a bit of bird distraction for those days when things are a bit dreich and the children needs some diversion.
