My new house has a bird feeder in the back yard, so one of my first thoughts on moving in was, hey, wouldn’t it be great to have a birdfeeder out the back window, so I could see all the new and exciting birds in this new neighborhood.

So I bought some seed and poured out about a buck-fifty worth of it, and two hours later I look out the back window and I see neither new birds nor exciting birds, but I do see quite a lot of birds.

It does not look like the bird feeder will be anything other than a mourning dove feeder.
