For the Birds

Well, it looks like the birds in our back yard have finally wised up. I hung two feeders from the tree branches a couple of weeks ago, and they have fed nothing but squirrels since then. Have you ever seen Cirque du Soleil? Those acrobats have got nothing on the ridiculous stunts the squirrels have been pulling to get into these things. Like, full-on upside-down one-handed dangling contortionist trapeze nonsense. But this morning, I walked out to find:

Ta-da! An actual bird! Excellent. Now fly down and start eating all those delicious mosquito larvae that are no doubt getting ready to torment us all summer.
