I think bird feeder is very little effort.  Biggest problem is locating where squirrels don't chase off birds and eat all of the bird seed.  Hummingbirds take more effort, sugar-water solutions that you have to replenish fairly often.   Still I feed them and like that.  There are hummingbirds in Illinois during the summer. I don't know about Chicago.  I want to try honey bees too (that's not vegan :-) ...  that is a much bigger project.

I hadn't even considered the connection to the dinos. Reality is so much more interesting than any of the purported stories of origin in any religious text.  I think I may invest in a bird feeder but I was also thinking of keeping bees so I don't know. One at a time...

I feed hummingbirds in the summer.  I think they migrate to Mexico in the winter.  The chicadees stay, and are often at my feeder.  Nothing so colorful.  Illinois has lots of interesting birds to watch and feed.  here.  I grew up downstate.  cardinals over wintered in our yard.  I think about how they are related to T-rex.  strange.

You're a genius! I don't think we have them here either but I saw it on Jeopardy and just had to look it up. Such a brilliant color. Do the hummingbirds and chicadees ever stop by your feeder?
