In the meantime, allow me to say my feeder now sits atop a sturdier pole, never to blow over again, and I've just seen - in the last few minutes - two signs of positive activity in the yard related to it.
["The metal lamp shade baffles the squirrels!"]
One. A sparrow has returned and will soon spread the news that the feeder is open for business once again.
Two. A squirrel is walking away dejectedly and will soon suggest to his buddies that Gord has baffled them again!
I love a good laugh, especially at a fuzzy rodent's expense.
