We get quite the wide variety at our feeder. I am including a list for my sake and for the one or two readers who might be interested (*cough* Grandpa Joe *cough*). Charlie gets excited about the birds as well and points at and does his bird sound imitation whenever he sees them. He also points out pictures of birds and packs around his toy bird more these days. Basically, we love having the feeder and I don't know why we waited so long to get one. There are only two problems with it:
1) the birds eat A LOT of seed. They are pretty good with eating it all (the cardinals keep the ground pretty clean) but they still go through it. This just means that the feeder isn't full every day, so no big deal.
2) although the squirrels can't get to it, it does bring them on to our little patio more. This by itself is not an issue but one squirrel likes to dig up my sage plant (Grrrrr...).
