I live in a rural area and my winter bird feeders usually have:
junkos (who the hell names these things, anyway?)
golden fronted woodpecker
boat tailed grackle
grey squirrels, one of which was a rehab and is still pretty tame.
a couple of optomistic but seldom lucky cats, mine and a neighbor's.
and some other stuff that slips my mind at the moment.
My feeders are made from small, galvenized garbage cans and hold someting like 15# of black oil seed each.
Beyond the feeders, I'm not all that intense a bird watcher. This time of year, I'm usually herping, and later on it'll be bug watching. Having finally gotten a decent camera, I hope to finally get some photos worth keeping.
I have a house (of sorts) 'possum that visits through the cat flap and hustles handouts. He's also a damned good mouser.
It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.
