A week or so ago, we put our old gazebo bird feeder back into service. The squirrels have destroyed all of the tube feeders but one and they are working on that one, too, having already eaten the top of it and the upper two perches.
The cardinals used to visit it years ago when it was originally out there. I don’t know if the current male cardinal is the same one from back then, but cardinals can live as long as 15 years, so it could be the same one.
I wondered if he would remember this feeder or ever visit it. I got my answer today.
Have a blessed weekend, y’all!
