Well, friends, I haven't had the time to paint this little guy yet, but he sure did make an impression. It was a bit tricky making it outside onto our back deck to get a photo of this little guy at our feeder. Anyone looking at our little suburbian yard would think we are insane. Two suet feeders, two finch socks, two seed feeders, and a large feeder with a great perch for cardinals....and it is a haven for local wildlife. My nine year old asked, "Mom, do you think we went a bit overboard?" In the beginning, I would've answered "yes," but when I look outside and see every single feeding station covered with birds of one type or another, I have to say, "No, it's not too much."
