A Flock of Conservatives

In our den we have two bird feeders stuck to the windows with those little rubber stopper things. Up until yesterday I kept one full of sunflower seed and the other one full of safflower seed.

I like to have safflower seed available because the squirrels turn their noses up at it. They prefer sunflower seed.

Up until yesterday I would watch the same little birds, same breeds fly on the safflower feeder, fly off, then stop by the sunflower feeder and grab himself a sunflower, then fly to the nearest limb. Break open the seed like cracking a nut. Sometimes it is quiet a job, they have to beat the seed against a limb, holding it with their beak. They wouldn’t have it any other way, it is their instinct.

I have four feeders of sunflower seed in the yard, so was one really needed in front of the window? The same birds came to one as the other, so it was not like we were losing watching a bird species or anything.

Yesterday I loaded both window feeders with safflower seed.

The little birds didn’t know quiet how to take that. They would fly on the edge of safflower seed and grab a seed or two, then leap over to the other one where the sunflower seeds were, looked confused a second, then fly away. They expected sunflower seed there. The feeder that did not change, the seed is going down quicker than the one that changed.

Apparently they don’t like change. A flock of conservatives.

safflower is shoulda stayed the course with sunflower.

also, when we stay in the hotel with the dog, she tries to bury her food. she tumps the bowl over and last time while we were asleep, she somehow got a hand towel and covered her food with it.

Hey Ed, does that mean you got to eat the sunflower seeds?

Mmm... Salted sunflower seeds...

Nice experiment, eh.

Set in your ways?...

Maybe your dog wants to save it in case just in case something happens to the people who know how to operate the can opener.

Safflower seed is bad? I never heard that... but it is bad for my wallet. Comparative expensive! Maybe your dog is hiding its food just in case that rainy day comes.

I wish. No, we have 4 other feeders plus a ground scratching mixture that the sunflower seeds to to.
Thank you. Maybe I am another TJ or BF.... Hah!

Me too. If I fall into a routine, it is hard to change courses.

You should be ashame of yourself.

Bush said Bad? Like Bad Bad Leroy Brown? I must have missed that. They must not have included that in the highlights of his speech. In fact, they had hardly anything in the highlights of his speech.
We go to bed early and missed it.
