Animals aren’t the boss of me. This is a new one.
A male bird.
That was yesterday and the birds are still here today. In fact since first light (4:30) the male has been dominating the feeder, he owns it now.
If either of our females have young we are going to be in for a woodpecker storm. I think that both of them have young and it is the bad weather that is driving them to the nuts but we shall see.
