You know you're doing something right when you look out your kitchen window and see this. Of course now I will be late for work, but I gotta have priorities! ;)

Good thing I bought that case of suet plugs the other day. Now I just wish I knew where this happy couple is nesting ...

Yup, when there's a pileated woodpecker on the feeder, no one is allowed to leave the house. When there are two, well that's just a showstopper!

I consolidated most of my feeders last spring so I could get them all on the feedercam. It works well except that the squirrels are able to jump down from the trees, after I moved the station to prevent the camera from pointing directly into the sun. I've been pretty happy with it.

Maybe they aren't nesting and have their eggs in that black bag, hoping you will give them a room for the summer. :)

Hah, then somebody needs to tell the goldfinches to quit eating from that bag. And maybe I need a bigger bag. ;)

Just a little while ago - I can't fill the suet feeders fast enough. Fortunately the peanut feeder is there as a backup.

Yep that is how it is at my house too. Although I've never been lucky enough to see two at a time.
