In the meantime, this clever downy woodpecker is in 7th heaven with a whole wreath of readily accessible peanuts just for him!

Working for Peanuts
When I checked my peanut reserve in the garage yesterday, I realized that 50 lb. bag I bought a few months ago is almost gone! Since those bluejays can gobble out up 3 cups worth in less than 20 minutes, I decided it was time to get the peanut wreath out again and make those jays work a little bit harder for their peanuts. Since they're used to coming back to the deck now, it shouldn't take them long to discover where the new peanut dispenser is. Some of them used this peanut wreath last winter, so it will be interesting to see who remembers it and how long it takes the young bluejays to figure it out.
