Today we cracked 100 Rusty's with 101 at one point.
These guys can go through 20lbs of mixed seed in a matter of a couple hours!   
6-8 Red-winged blackbirds mixed in as well as 3 or 4 Cowbirds and 1 Grackle.

Another note is the number of Northern Flickers visiting feeders this winter.  
Well above the average number of people are coming into the shop talking about 
having them and we have at least 3 individuals regularly at ours as well this
