I have a bird feeder encased in a narrow cage opening cage. That works out well for the sparrows that we share our backyard with. Since these little guys apparently don’t migrate, so I’ve been trying to keep the feeder stocked as the weather has gotten colder. That has attracted the attention of some unexpected visitors.
Here’s how things usually look:
This blue jay would like to crash the party, if he could only fit.
The squirrel doesn’t fit either. But being a true bottom feeder, he discovered that by hanging upside down he could scrape off the crumbs.
