Saturday distractions

An entire flock of sparrows has been emptying my bird feeder and giving me good excuses to be distracted from the writing I'm supposed to be doing. The new birdfeeder is also attracting a pair of cardinals, a bunch of blue jays who are too big and too dumb to figure out how to get to the seeds, a grackle who can't fit inside but who hilariously hangs on to the bottom and spins around while pecking furiously between the openings in the cage, doves and robins who happily pick up whatever spills on the ground, a lone nuthatch, and of course wily squirrels who are not supposed to be able to fit in the cage but who of course do.
