My wife and I installed a homemade bird feeder fashioned from a gallon milk jug on our back fence. So far, the only critters who frequent it are a pair of squirrels. We've seen a bevy of quail in the park on the other side of the fence, and a few stragglers have investigated the seed strewn in the snow by the messy rodents. But to my knowledge, no birds have actually visited the feeder proper. You can imagine my delight when I saw a flicker sitting above the feeder trying to decide if it was safe to jump down to munch on the delicious seed. It's fair to say that:

The flicker was on the fence about the bird feeder.
