glass. It seems to work for me; I haven't had any strikes since I did it, but also my birdfeeder

time and have to be renewed.
Yesterday I went to Turners Falls just over the border in MA and took photos of an Iceland
gull and a glaucous gull, which I put on my website

solitary common loon, large flock of mallards and many mute swans, both adults and
juveniles. It was worth the 20 mile trip from Brattleboro.
