I am fortunate and live along the Mississippi River south of Red Wing. I can add to the story and learn from the story. The things I know and have "confirmed" is this: It is a never ending enjoyment of the varied species we have the pleasure of watching continuously throughout the 4 seasons. We feed the birds year around and not a day goes by that the investment is not returned 4 fold. The different species, behaviors are "priceless"! Yesterday, it was a "type of small finch"! They hit the feeders and suet en mass, eat for 30 seconds and scurry away, only to return in a couple minutes, feed for another 30 seconds and scurry away. Today it was a dove variety, no finch! What's coming tomorrow! Keep the "feeders full" and we'll see! I know we'll be watchin'!
