Thanks everyone.
Alveric you have pigeons, we have an endless supply of squirrels. I get pigeons do
less damage? The squirrels destroy a lot feeders each year, we're just glad the hawk helps
and this afternoon I saw three RTHs flying overhead so the word is out that we have a free rodent
buffet in the backyard.
