Felix Feeds the Birds

Felix has added a new feeder to his inventory, and it's proving to be very popular with the front-yard birds. He dug through the dumpster at the cabinet-maker's shop and got a discarded cabinet door, which, laid down flat, has a decorative rim all the way around it to keep birdseed from falling off. He mounted it on a 4 x 4 post which he stuck in the ground, and keeps it supplied with sunflower seeds. A whole flock of juncos were on it this morning, and we often see sparrows, cardinals, and jays.

The nice thing about this feeder is that it's visible from the dining room, sitting room, and school room, where we spend our mornings. It's fun to look out and see all the tiny activities going on. Even Daisy likes watching the birds.
