    Our platform feeder is so popular with the birds that sometimes a line forms.

    I feed on the ground so don`t have lines but,,, I have the cleanest sparrows in Texas ! Just don`t understand why they have to take a sand bath before hitting the water !

    Great piccy, Jane. Those birds are so interesting to see, especially the red one.
    We have queues as well...but the line-ees are a different breed of waiters-in-the-wings.

    We were taking a breather yesterday and took this snapshot of the tits on our feeder, a couple of meters away.

    They do not like going inside the feeder when another bird is in there. It has resulted in wing-ti-cuffs in the past....so they wait their turn.
