Where'd All the Birds Go?

Jerry has lost his mind.

Gone. Poof. Nowhere to be seen.

Also nowhere to be seen are our finches. Where did they all go?

We used to have one small "dangler" full of finch food from which 10-11 finches would eat.

But now? Not 10. Not 9. Not 8, or 7, or 6, or 5, or 4, or 3, or 2. Maybe one finch will eat at our feeder.

Why? What happened?

The "dangler" was replaced by a jellyfish-shaped feeder.

There are now four danglers on the feeder and a convenient automatic refilling container on top.

And no finches to eat it.

Where did they go?

Somewhere. Elsewhere. Anywhere but here. When the single dangler broke and Jerry replaced it with the jellyfish, all of the birds flew away.

Can you blame them?

I have a brain larger than a peanut and I'm scared of that thing, too.

But he couldn't replace it with the SAME dangler, he had to get a BIGGER one. A HUGE one!
