I'd be thrilled to have more birds...but, honestly, I'm very happy to have a few different species nesting in the yard and others that I spot foraging or just flying through. I'm thrilled...but I want MORE! --strange, why did I just flash on Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds? I barely remember that movie. [In case you all haven't noticed, my brain works in mysterious (odd) ways.]

Well, swamp thing, I'm a bit of a picky eater myself and don't often try new foods, so I can't blame them. I guess I'd better get out there and try to take care of them myself--thanks for the reminder.
