I think I missed the magpies visit. There are prints which look like they could belong to the magpies.
I left a suet-seed ball for them. Hopefully they and the crow return.
Sparrows and a blue tit visited.

The sparrow’s left and now there’s a blue tit pecking at the bird-feeder :)
Three sparrows on the bird feeder. Two of them keep aggressively flying towards a great tit :(
There’s enough food for all of you on the feeder and I have like 10 more suet-seed balls.
So far the bird feeder has been visited by:
-a third small magpie
-bunch of great tits
-a blue tit
-Huge sparrow and his girlfriend (I don’t know, the big one and a female sparrow seem to show up at the same time)
-a bunch of normal sized sparrows.
Hello from the deep freeze that is Austin, Texas.
Some years, the temperatures never get below freezing in Austin. In the years when it does freeze, it doesn’t last longer than a few hours. We’re accustomed to 70 degree days in January, not consistently, but warm enough that some younger men don’t even seem to own a pair of long pants.
Not this year. We are breathing Arctic air, experiencing ice, snow, and prolonged below-freezing temps, and…
There are currently 3 suet-seed balls in the bird feeder. The magpies took one earlier. Saw the magpie dig around in the snow for the suet-seed ball and peck at it for a while. A neighbor walked past scaring the magpie, but the bird carried the suet ball off.
This morning a eurasian blue tit visited. The bird left when two sparrows came to eat.
Several great tits have also found the bird feeder.
I think should just order a new birdfeeder online. The stores nearby don’t have any.
Forgot to close the screen…. Spider Squirrel is after the feeder again.
Ultra slow-motion video of a Tufted Titmouse at our big window bird feeder during today’s (2/7/21) snowstorm. Taken by my husband. Isn’t it just gorgeous?

Oh my god… okay so the way we designed the new bird feeder we built is that the top platform is bigger so that one’s for pigeons and bigger birds and then the bottom one is smaller and the pigeons are supposed to not be able to get into that because then it gives the robins and smaller birds a chance to get food… but guess what fucking happened today
Pigeon on both platforms… we don’t even know how it got in there… goddamnit
