      What a great list on your blog of what you DO have down there Bob. I’m impressed.

  2. I like to imagine that the downy is perched on a steering wheel, driving through town, looking for an address. He should get a GPS.

      Thank you kindly for the better visuals. I’ve been seeing it for what it is- the ugly metal pole the feeder hangs from. It’s such an easy-going bird, a lot of its movements actually mimic a cautious driver.

  3. Glad you got their minds right about the potential for a messy patio!
    But I wouldn’t count on them cooperating;
    that’s why they call em turkeys.

      I had to laugh wondering why anyone would waste a moment of energy wishing for the impossible.

      I have a brillant spring removal system I’ve used for years. (:
