On our way into the store, we noticed a display in their window. In it was a super modern (and super green) bird feeder. We did our shopping and casually mentioned it to the cashier that we couldn't find it. She went and brought one to us from the back since they hadn't been put out yet. We were thrilled. What a cool find:
We took it home, excited to treat the gazillion birds that visit our backyard daily.
Weren't we fooled!
Apparently, country birds don't appreciate the ultra mod look. Not one single bird has touched the darn thing in almost a week. We've moved it three times. Today Michael even drug their favorite limb to perch on next to the feeder and placed a bowl of food under the full feeder. Nothing.
And they say city folk are rude! :)
