This winter Abby decided to nosh on fallen birdseed, seed shells and delicious birdy poop from underneath the feeders. Then she would come in the house and BLEAH all over the floor... this could not continue.
The green edged trampoline below the big feeder is one of our attempts to stop that. So far reaction is mixed. The big red-winged blackbirds, who show up this time of year, really got it swinging. We have also fenced off a huge expanse of lawn that the birdies litter. The big basin at the side is our new bird water and bath. Can be heated in the winter.
