In November we put out the bird feeders and it always delights me how quickly the birds (and unfortunately the squirrels) make their way to our home. It is almost like a dinner bell has been rung. Within an hour the back yard is full of fluttering activity. This delights Seamus as well. Our youngest pup still hasn't realized he will never catch a squirrel and he runs outside howling to catch them (not unlike a beagle).
