If I Had a Nickel...

...for every bird that has fed at one of my bird feeders today...

I'd probably have enough to pay for my next order of bird seed.

I'm looking out my window right now at eight lesser Texas goldfinches, who weigh about as much as two nickels each, each busily shelling and eating nyjer seeds that run 1/100,000 of a pound each, and they go through a pound or two per day.
