I Rejoiced Too Soon

This morning, when I lifted the bird feeder to refill it the hanger fell off! I was terrified it would hit someone on the street, but I guess there was little chance of that given the hour and the fact that it was raining. It landed on the windowsill of a neighbor in any case, and never made it to the street.

I took this picture just now.

A couple of birds waiting for me to stop with the picture taking already so they can get back to breakfast. I guess I quit. For now. I’m going to put out a little more shower curtain in one more spot, but I’ve done my best.
