Nice to know I'm not the only one with birds that sort out the seed from the feeder. Damn Hedge Sparrows throw out all the wheat, flaked maize and sunflower seeds. They're supposed to be insectivores, aren't they? I'm not made of birdseed and pick it up again and put it back in. Something eventually eats it. Blackbirds doing vertical takeoffs under fatball and grabbing what they can in passing. No squirrels yet. Non-garden sighting about a mile from home: Oystercatcher - feeding at roadside! (Quiet country road - no water anywhere near, but they nest out there somewhere.) No swallows yet, but pinkfooted geese long gone.
