When I lost my two birds it was early morning. Before I got home from work at 615. There were two huge feather piles and then a sporadic trail of feathers all the way back to the wood line bout 300 yards away. I also blame the foxes and the not so brightness of my dogs. That was in early November and I haven't had a problem since.
well, it is spring and I assume there are little mouths to feed.
the foxes get pretty bold then.
we have had them hit at high noon . right outside the kitchen window.
