A Surprise "Thank You"

Florence Conner Hearn

From our breakfast window my husband and I noticed that something was wrong outside. The bird feeder was full, but few birds were visiting. Those that came quickly flew away.

Aubrey examined the feeder at close range. No wonder!! The seeds were damp and caked hard in the pan, as if they were spoiled. Birds could not reach the dry seed.

I cleaned the feeder and filled it with dry seed. Later I returned to the kitchen to check on the birds. They had found the fresh seed and were fluttering back and forth from shrubs to feeder.

Then to my surprise I saw this neatly typed note on the kitchen table:

Dear Florence:
Many thanks for the fresh seeds. You are a real bird-lover.
Your birds.

Your birds
