Friday is a workday for me this week

Pine Siskins on an antique scale

I rinsed out and refilled my hummingbird feeder early this morning, and one or more has been visiting several times already. I will go to my part-time job at the birding store, where we sell hummingbird feeders and a variety of seed, suet and things to put the food in. But, my day at work will be short, 1 to 6 and it will probably be quite busy. Looking out my window from the breakfast table at so many birds at my feeders is quite entertaining and provides a sense of peace in this turbulent world.

And the birds don't know how much they are admired.

I love watching the birds at the feeder! Is that your feeder in the photo?

Photo is mine
Yes, that is an old market scale from Turkey that Anne brought back from her years there. We decided it would be a good place for some seed. Here is another photo.

@JamesHxstatic Neat!!! Does it matter if the seed in the tray gets wet? I worry about that, maybe needlessly.

@blitzfrick It sort of gets caked in there and has to be cleaned out (scraped), but is okay temporarily.
