I'm not big on birds, as some of you may know, but I couldn't resist snagging one of the soda bottle bird feeders from the store. We have cats. The cats are bored this time of year--they just lie on the bed and look out the back window for hours. The bunnies and squirrels that normally amuse them are on the down-low in the winter. So I thought I'd try a bird feeder. Now they just watch for the birdies. It took a couple of days for the birds to find the feeder, but now that they have, the seed has been going down about an inch a day. I think that Shirley (the cat in the pictures) has a new hobby. Great use for an old soda bottle, too! Luckily, the squirrels haven't discovered the bird feeder yet, but if they do, they'll have a hard time trying to get on it! It's hanging from a curved metal awning without so much as a tree branch nearby.
