Patience... [Sep. 30th, 2004|01:37 pm]

We bought a gadget that you fix to the mouth of a large plastic bottle in order to turn it into a dispenser of bird seed. I assembled the dispenser and hung it in the eucalyptus tree in the back yard. That was yesterday. Since then I haven't seen a single bird in the vicinity.

Like as not, the sudden appearance of the new object in the tree has them feeling skittish. Once they get used to it, they will return. I've never tried a feeder like that - we use one of the "traditional" ones, and the birds flock to it constantly. As do the damnable squirrels! (Note that I normally think squirrels are quite cute and charming, except when they are literally destroying the feeder to get to the seeds inside, scaring off all the birds and making a mess in the process)

Re: Uncertainty

I think we're safe from squirrels. I've never seen one in our yard. There aren't enough trees on this side of the road to tempt them over from the big gardens opposite.

I've just looked out the window- nope; still no birds.
