Somebody Up There Likes Me

Last weekend, while I was grocery shopping, I bought a suet block and a 'suet feeder cage' to hang from the fence around my patio.   I had heard it was going to be a cold week, and it seemed like a good idea.

Yesterday, one sparrow and three blue jays came by for a snack.

Today the temperatures hover around the freezing point.   Sleet, ice pellets, freezing rain at various times of the day.

Looking out my patio door, I counted as many as eight sparrows fluttering around the feeder.

The suet block is 2/3 gone, already.

Tomorrow, I'll have to go buy another suet block.   It seems very popular.

In fact ... I might as well stock up.   Those sparrows eat more than I do!

One thing about trolling the grocery story; you gotta be sincere.

If you can fake that, you've got it made!
