We picked up a birdfeeder at the local hardware shop a few weeks ago, and filled it to the brim with feed intended to attract finch and similar birds.  The local birdies are going crazy!  I swear, it’s like they’ve told all the birds in the neighborhood where to get the best birdseed.

I caught one of our little friends in the act the other day…

And the best part?  It’s the kind of birdfeeder that, if any more weight than a standard bird rests on the ledge (like a squirrel!), the feeder closes and the intruder can’t get the seed!
