I paid $31 for a 50# bag of black oil. That’s $10 more than last year.

Yup! Price went up eh? No big surprise these days.

Good man Dom. The flock will really appreciate it. I put a bunch of rocks in mine.needs cleaning about every two weeks.

Birds are indiscriminate shitters.

I put a bunch of rocks in mine. Brought it in and cleaned it today amazing that algae will grow in these temps. Not to mention that birds are indiscriminate shitters.

They do use it every day all day long.

Yeah, my flock is draining the feeders at a breakneck pace. We get the redwings and tricolors in the early spring. But seed really isn’t their main feed. They disappear when the cattails start getting green.

The good news is that I’ve been designated not only the supplier of, but caretaker of all the new bird houses we’re adding to the golf course this year. 217 acres of bird habitat to play with. The super is set on being an Audubon Society approved course  and I’m all in!

I really Like this guy.
I can tend the bird houses way after I’m too old to mow any more.

I’ve got a dozen or so houses in storage. I was gonna sell some at market last year but, a nice lady across from my space was selling bird houses and I didn’t want to compete. Just a courtesy really. She was really nice and bought some of my toys.

So, I think they’ll be donated to the cause.

Our flock this afternoon.



The rest are in the lilac bush. They take turns. It’s pretty comical.
