King of Gentle Gardens…we have a heated bird bath…but where does this guy go?  He sits on this one, pacing up and down, until I give in and add hot water to break the ice…he drinks and then captures the bird feeder.  We can’t tell if  it is a female or male as they are mostly identical to non-birders.  And they love acorns…which we have none.  But he likes our cracked corn and black oilers.  He is fun to watch as he breaks the oilers and tosses the shells into the air with a dignified manner. The other birds sit on the patio table until he has had his fill and flies away.
