Finch Fun

Friday, February 11, 2022

(Moon phase is Waxing Crescent; February’s “Snow Moon” rises fullest on 16th.)

Recently, a customer checking out at my register bought a length of half-pipe made of lightweight metal. When I asked what it was designed for, she said it’s a long feeder for numerous chickens. She intended to hang it in her finch aviary.

She held up the scooped channel and showed me some hanging brackets. Hung correctly, it would allow her birds to feed collectively. Its depth would limit seed spilling.

How many finches? She said, “I have over eighty; some are exotic.”

Well, there it happens. A bird-person meets another bird-person.

Today, I’ll visit her place before going to work. I will see her aviary, meet her birds, and take pictures. If I capture a cool aviary showing the feeder and birds, I’ll request permission from the customer and my managers to submit the photo to our store’s home office.

Each company store has a lunchroom with a video setup. A wall shows a continuously rolling display of photos highlighting various stores and taken by employees. No photos are showing that represent Bend’s store. If I capture an image of the chicken trough purchased from our store, hung with finches perching and feeding, that might fit the bill.

Dear Friends: This morning, I’ll be perched and trying to see creatively. Diana
