    Poor soaking baby… I know how they feel. I haven’t been putting any seed out lately cause of the rain and I don’t think they are very happy.

  • LOL…we have had non stop rain for 2 or 3 weeks???? and they still come for seed. Thanks for your comment. I appreciate your support and encouragement. Robyn :)
