    I have lost two of these suet feeders that were chained to my fence. The squirrels chewed right through the chain and I never found them again. Now I keep them out of reach. Lovely shot of two of my favorite backyard visitors. Thank you so much for your kind spotlight Don. I will do my best to reciprocate one day.
