The same thing happened with my new bird feeder.
I wanted birds, and I got squirrels. Almost threw the whole thing out and started over.
Well, yesterday I got to see why delaying my rage induced bird feeder smashing was a good idea. There were so many birds that I watched for hours. Blue Jays were all over it when I woke up on Saturday. They make a terrible mess just picking up seeds and throwing them around. That's not a problem though. Why? Because the doves and pigeons love to hop around on the ground and eat what that throw around. The cardinals and the sparrows show up after the Blue Jays are gone to liven things up a bit. All the happy chirping was a plus too.
The sad part is, this may have been happening all along and I just didn't see it. The seed kept decreasing and I thought it was the squirrels, but maybe all this excitement was always there and I was just missing it.
Sometimes learning happens when we are not there to see it. That doesn't mean it isn't happening. It also isn't necessarily a bad thing that the kids we weren't necessarily focusing on get excited. What's the point? Not exactly sure there is one other than my realization that trying new things and giving them time to work isn't the worst idea I've ever had.
