1. Take down your feeders for 2 weeks, or
2. (Daily) Clean/scrub your feeders with soapy water, dip in 1:9 bleach solution, and wash with soapy water after

Icicles dripping down the mouth of this tiny cave out from which comes a little stream.

Just saw 22 Black Vultures eating on a deer carcass on the bank of the river.

The fourth group of trash I've picked up in the woods today. 90% is drinks like beer, soda, water, etc.

Some partially buried barbed wire ripped my pants open. At least it wasn't my leg. 😨

Some slow forks of the river I have thin sheets of ice on them.

Practice is doing something intentionally in order to improve your ability. Talent is someone's capacity to practice.
