I also heard the Redwings this morning. Much to my sorrow, they did remember my feeders after all, and are building up in numbers now. They even have gone after the Niger feeders, hanging onto the cages and trying to feed. They are relentless.
Between them and the large numbers of Siskins that have returned (two days ago, about 150), I am going to have to give up a couple meals a day, and just have oatmeal for breakfast, simply to keep my seed supply up. Not to mention the suet demands.
They all love me, but only for my seed. A bunch of seed diggers they are!
