Busy Diner

When my wife and I went shopping today, town was a mad-house. Worst of all was the at post office, where there was no parking space left, so my wife went inside to get "if it fits, it ships" boxes, and I drove in and out the parking lot - getting to several spots just after the car ahead of me parked. Eventually, my wife emerged, and we drove off.

Our bird-feeder had been a similar mad-house earlier in the day, as the attached photos show. It seems as soon as one left a feeding opening, two more arrived.

They certainly like the menu. You should charge for parking

Thank you for the comment.

And, of course, it is exactly this type of situation from which the term "pecking corner" comes from.

Thank you for the comment.

My daughters have commented before about my "bribing" birds so that I will have photographic opportunities.
I suppose their appearing could be considered to be my payment.
