  1. Good Morning Gaynor...
    That is a very pitcher-skew use of a dead tree... but the Guinea Fowl looks a bit confused... but then again, they always are!

    1. We always see guinea fowl there but it's hard to say whether they are the same birds or on a rolling programme to the pot!

  2. I am definitely impressed! But what a job to keep everything filled!

    1. It's not ours, but it always seems fairly well stocked through the winter.

  3. Hello Gaynor:
    We are a little confused! What about all the birds?!!

    1. Susan, those two big feeders...
      the peanut one [grey/galv'd] and the seed one [green] above it are large bird and squirrel proof...
      they are the only design that is....
      [RSPB and Gardening Which tested]
      PROVIDED of course....
      they don't take them off the hooks.
      It has been seen!! I don't think anything is really "American tree rat" proof!
      Then, all the other stuff around them might also act as a distraction? {{8-)

    1. Do you mean to see or to eat?

      I've never tried to buy one in France.

  7. We had guinea fowl...escaped from the farm over the road....they seemed to have a death wish as I had to keep a net handy for fishing them out of the river.

    I'm tracking down a source here to breed them for the table...our table.

  8. It's brilliant and totally bizarre and I agree with Tim that the guinea fowl definitely looks confused, poor thing! Love it. Axxx
