But half a dozen or more is a recipe for disaster. That's what we have in my suburban garden. More than I need and a mess! They've cleaned out the suet feeder, emptied the bird feeders and dug up plants in the garden. Even offering them their own food doesn't keep them away from the feeders for long! They have voracious appetites all winter long! (Step Right This Way Folks! Seeing Is Believing!) Never stop searching for food and seek out scrumptious bulbs. My good friends Barbara/Mr Mcgregor's Daughter and Frances/Fairegarden know my pain.
