Window feeders are great.  Especially when the birds that come to said feeders are used to people walking up to look at them.  They’re not so great when the squirrels learn that the window serves as an effective barrier to human intervention and start launching airborne assaults, commando style, from the roof to the feeders and stay there sucking up seed.  Despite the best efforts of the four-legged furry set some birds stayed long enough to allow me to get some shots with my 60mm macro lens, once again at my aunt and uncle’s house.

my younger brother, Jonathan, might have taken the picture above
