Among other things he had a special going on in his bird department and since I had been thinking about adding a couple more feeders around the joint I sat down and listened to his spiel. By the time he was done I had ordered four more feeders, 100 pounds of special seed and three cases of suet (36 cakes). I figured I was good to go for at least a month.
