Such adorable birds and this project is awesome, the amount of details and efforts to this post are commendable.

As always, you have a great report. My bird feeder is also popular with birds, but so far I've only seen titmice.

It takes time for other birds to find your feeder. When you consistently get one kind of bird soon other types of birds will show up.
Keep you feeder full and the birds will come!

Have great week!!
Steem on,
Mike
