Revenge of the Small

Bastille Day came early.  I decided to "free myself" from the grackles, and after they emptied the suet feeder in record time, I took action.  This meant pulling into the same spot this special feeder that's only accessible from below.   The small birds vindicated my faith in them: the Carolina Wrens and Downy Woodpeckers immediately grasped the approach and had a good day.  The grackles did not.  We'll let this go for some days, enough to discourage the big bullies.  The small birds had their revenge!
