Tensions at the feeders have been running high the last few days. There are hundreds of birds and only 2 seed feeders and a suet cake. I looked out yesterday and it had come to blows on the ground under the feeder as they went for the few seeds that fell. It was like a perpetual hockey face off out there. So in addition to filling the hoppers each morning, I’ve taken to scattering a healthy scoop on the ground as well.
Things have gotten much more civil with more to go around.Hmmmm. More to go around would seem to contribute to more civility. Something well worth pondering, I’d say.
