I plan to leave the stands out for the birds to perch on...They were used earlier to hang the jelly dish on for the orioles who have now left for South America and another stand was used for hanging hummingbird nectar...However since these migratory birds are not here now, the year around birds like to perch on top when they are waiting their turn to get on the feeder. It works perfectly also for me when shooting pictures through the window to get a clearer view of the birds who perch on these stands to photograph them without distraction in the background.

Today the sun is shining thankfully, and shot this at an angle away from the reflective glare in
two window panes. He is tilting his head listening because I think he heard the beep of my camera signalling it was in focus. There is a little breeze that ruffled his feathers slightly.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
