Subject: RE: BS: Hummingbirds
I'm in Fort Worth, Texas. It's not uncommon to find pet birds in places like this, at least not around here. They live in the greenhouses, and are moved indoors when it gets too hot or too cold.

I put up a bird feeder in the back yard this morning. Several visitors have checked it out, but I haven't seen anyone eat at it yet. The news is getting around. Blue jays, cardinals, and lots of little finches and such. A dove sat on the little roof looking down at it for quite a while before leaving. The feeder and the food are for smaller birds. It says "squirrel proof." Ha! I won't believe that until I see the squirrels make a try for it and fail. They're fearless around here.
