Shooter's Comments: Fox Island offers a short class on bird feeding for kids. The kids didn't show up but the birds did. Also a red squirrel, a fat chipmunk and an opossum up way past his bedtime, all cleaned up under the feeders.
The majority of birds on the Fox feeders at this time were mostly dull yellow goldfinches and sparrows but it was such a grey afternoon I decided to wait until a male cardinal showed up for color. I think I got lucky with the titmouse, chickadee and woodpecker on the same feeder. A bluejay would have added a nice touch, but no such luck.
