Tiny Little Birds

Male American Redstart

House Wren

Bird-Feeder Vandal

Our birdfeeder has been sitting on the deck for the last few days so that the birds would come right up to the house. Sunday morning I noticed that the string on top of the birdfeeder had been cut. Monday morning more of the string was missing. This morning my brother caught the culprit red-handed.

This Cottontail had been chewing up the string and carrying it off.
