    2. I see the tail now too. It's such a fun picture. Could be a puzzle or one of those find it pictures in magazines. :)

    3. At least I didn't ask for the number of leaves, right? ha.

    1. They cleaned out a full feeder in an hour! Good grief! I told The Mister I hope they move on..I can't afford to feed them all winter at that rate!

  10. I have that many birds or more at my feeders and I would like to know why your wooden feeder is not full of bird poop? I would like to paint mine but I can't get thru the doo.

    1. I don't know! I guess they don't sit above the feeder! ha. They are always in it or below it, so the roof stays clean! But I think I need a second one hanging there so I don't have to fill them so often!

  14. Wouldn't have seen ANY if you hadn't said they were there :-)

  15. I saw 9. By the way, it's a great photo. It reminds me of one of my childhood friends, Bob. He took a .22 shell and placed it on top of a piece of 2 by 4. He baited the ground immediately in front of it with stale bread crumbs. Then he sat back (as well did I) with a daisy BB gun. When some doves landed, he shot the BB gun, hit the .22 shell, which hot a dove in the neck. Miracle shot that was never repeated albeit tried. lol

    1. Oh my. Good shot! I've hit a lemon and a tin can before with a pellet gun but never a .22 shell. haha.

  16. Bummer, they kept moving, so I never got a accurate count!! But I did count a zillion leaves. haha

    ReplyDelete
  17. I counted nine, but agree...they kept moving! Especially tough to count with all those colorful leaves on the ground. Another awesome photo Betsy. Thanks for sharing the smiles.
