Ever since we moved to the farm, I’ve wanted to set out our housewarming gift, a cedar bird feeder. I wanted to see blue jays, gold finches, rose-colored grosbeaks, and cardinals fly in to eat. As a child, I’d watch for these birds. All that living color.
Denise said that, with bird feeders, you get to see varieties of birds lighting up your yard.
“What kind should I get?” I asked.
“A Yankee Droll, because they know how to set them up. Fill it with thistle seed,” she said.
“What about squirrels?” (We call our one squirrel Stub Tail.)
