> Hi Patti,
> Gib here. I just saw the Thrush out on the wall, hadn't seen her all day, but she just showed up. Thought I'd let you know. She has been feeding throughout the day for short periods, about 5 minutes tops, then flies up into the Hemlocks, for about 15 to 20 minutes, then back down to the corn. I made up the recipe from Don, and she hasn't found the suet feeder yet that I put down low on a tree, but I have been spreading bits of it around on the wall, and on the ground, and she's eating that.
> If you let folks know that she's still here, tell them to watch the ice, we have just enough snow to make things dangerous out there!!
> Talk to you soon,
