They're Covered

Sometimes I wonder if people who see the feeders from the street think I have developed some kooky kind of space alien city.  For, you see, there are a host of domes everywhere.  I have covered every feeder with a weather dome, like the one shown.  This is not out of tender concern for birds: I know they can deal with getting wet just fine.  No, I care about the birdseed.  These domes deflect the water and keep the seed reasonably dry.  And as a result I have no important mold problems throughout the year.  And let's be serious: the domes look nifty.  It is sort of a space age city.  And I do wonder even if the birds think so, too, as they munch dry seed out of the weather.  They're covered!
