I have always wanted to try sewing big yellow buttons on the hat (or
beanie) to see if that old "I've got my eyes on you" trick works. Haven't
had to do so though because I refill my 2nd flr feeders from inside,
leaning out a large window to the feeders in a tree. When the local
Cooper's shows up I am safely inside getting to observe this great yard
