Just thought I’d quickly share this junk-picking find with all of you. I found this Droll Yankee feeder in perfect condition–it just needed a little cleaning–on the curb in a pile of stuff the homeowner wanted to get rid but not throw away (if that makes sense). People around here (myself included) put things we want to get rid of in the terrace between the sidewalk and curb (public space) a few days before garbage pickup.
I filled most of my feeders late last week. For about two days I had no customers and then the first chickadee appeared. Within two days the feeders filled up with chickadees, tit mice, house finches, English sparrows, nuthatches, cardinals, and some very feisty gold finches! Begonia
