Definition of a classic: a book everyone is assumed to have read and often thinks they have.


Theme Thursday today, and leaving the post again to the last minute has me striving to think outside the BOX.

This is a - hopefully - moody little photograph of what I believe is Earth's most unpopular bird feeder. We have no cats, no dogs, plenty of birds about, lots of healthy and nutritious bird seed, and a beautiful BOX feeder right there waiting to be visited; but not one. None. Zero. Keiner. Neviens. Absolutamente ninguna!

Well, it's pretty spooky.

Hah, long time between visits.

Maybe it only attracts budgies and, as we both know, they have all been smuggled.

Erm are you putting any food in the feeder? Is it near a tree? Surely if you put a bit of smelly fish in there at least the seagulls will yell "Moine"!

maybe they dont like the brand of bird seed?

I will be honest with you. Of all the bird houses your mother and I have ever put up, I can't ever remember seeing a bird in any of them. Perhaps the birds around here aren't the homely types.

BEWARE OF HIGH FLYING BIRDS!

the haunted bird house! or perhaps the birds are frightened off by highly spirited youngsters!

A conundrum. I must admit, I find the feeder a bit spooky, so...

Cool photo!

So strange. Maybe the birds in your area have to have it all natural,lol
