It's funny, during the growing season I curse the birds. We're not friends. They eat my sowed seeds, steal my seedlings, poop everywhere and wreak havoc on the berries. But this winter it has been especially harsh, with unprecedented amounts of snow in our area. We had the snowiest January ever! And so I feel bad for them, and almost compelled to feed them. So I put out a suet for them to eat. I have no tree branches low enough to hang this on, and I don't own any shepherd's hooks, so I hung it on our chain link fence. It's been hanging there for a week. I haven't seen any birds by it yet. I think they haven't found it. LOL. Maybe I'll pick up a shepherd's hook soon so the birds can actually see there is food available to them. You see birds, how nice I'm being to you? You better repay the favor come spring and leave my plants alone. ;) And yes I know, there are some beneficial birds out there that eat bugs and the like, but mine seem to like eating my plants. Those can find a new home.
