Trekking through the deep snow with my ancient Sorel boots I hung the ornaments on our spruce trees using a piece of dowling rigged with an L hook on the end. It was -20°C outside people! I hope the birds appreciate the fact that I froze my butt off for them.
It's been a week since hanging the ornaments and every single one of them, including the tray of seed, have been devoured. As for Rex, I didn't check!
