Larry, do you provide for the birds? I'm a bird guy. I had parrots for 15 years but had to rehome them when I moved. Coincidentally, just today I welcomed a new canary into my home!

I do go thru 20lbs of seed every other day. It keeps the sparrows, doves, and quail quite happy all year. In the Spring have lots of other type birds that fly thru the area.
