Of course, the suet is for the birds' nourishment, but viewing the birds gives us nourishment for the senses. So the feeders needed to be hung where we could indulge as well, which meant they needed to hang from the deck railing. Using his creative skills, Mr Woodworker made some nifty supports that fit snugly on the railing, and from which we can hang the suet feeders for maximum visibility.
With the feeders rigged for action, the suet ready for our feathered friends' consumption, we loaded and hung them with care, hoping the birds would soon be there. We waited with bated breath...when, what to our wandering eyes did appear, but one, then two, then many a bird there.
