Today my research assistant, personal chef, and co-pilot at Tall Tales Headquarters, invented a new tool. Because some of you might be interested I am sharing it here.
You will need a wire coat hanger and some wire cutters to make it. I specifically requested an extra sharp tip on the end.
This tool is for the specific purpose of breaking up big goobery gobs of bird seed that get all clumped together and will not come out of your bird feeder. No matter how hard you shake and prod and try to get them out of that hole that goes from top to bottom. Even when you take the bottom off the feeder.
Now I can insert the tool through the small mesh of the feeder and break them up into manageable bits that easily come out. I hate it when I have had to put fresh food in a feeder with these stale, moldy, clumps.
And now I don't have to. I am pretty sure my bird friends are going to appreciate it greatly. Not these crazy starlings that devoured the juniper berries and any other berry in site the other day. They don't give a hoot about that feeder.
But Mr. Cardinal and Ms. Mourning Dove let me know they appreciated it. Along with all the goldfinches, house-finches, and chickadee's.
One final note that has nothing to do with anything, but made me happy and so I though it might make you happy too... thank you Leslie for pointing out this fabulous performance to me. It is my duty to also bring it to your attention.
