New Window Feeder

My last two window feeders failed to survive the cleaning process (the suction cups no longer stick), but here's number 3, a birthday present from my folks (thanks Mom and Dad!)

Visitors today include: chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, goldfinch, house finch, house sparrows, cardinals, downy woodpeckers, and (just checking things out), a ruby-throated hummingbird male.

The last two window feeders have failed to attract cardinals. Not this one!

My favorite visitor is an awkward young nuthatch, who still hasn't quite figured out how to elegantly swoop onto the edge of the bowl (either landing on the slippery roof or missing the feeder entirely). Second is the downy, who pounds on the vinyl window frame while waiting her turn.
