the feeder didn't fare well after that. It is amazing the power those things have. She bent back and snapped a rhododendron limb the feeder was attached to that was the size of your wrist. I guess I'll go back to scattering the corn on the ground. Sometimes I can hear them not far away milling about waiting for me to leave. I look at the time on the pics and they come in just a few minutes after I leave.
