No Wings, No Service

To once again demonstrate my devout un-manly-ness, I confess that I am a bird watcher (and not just of the Brit variety). In my back yard is a Gold Finch feeder, a Tube feeder, and now a Hummingbird feeder (that is being used as I type).

The seed I prefer to use for my boyds is safflower, as in general those pesky squirrels don't like the stuff. I have come to find, as the photo clearly shows, that chipmunks have a slightly different palate than their fluffy tailed cousins, and are more than happy to fill their cheeks with the stuff. I have since replaced this feeder, with the above mentioned hummer feeder, leaving Alvin, Simon, and Theodore to seek other yards to dine in.
