This is my balcony feeder. I mentioned last sudnay that I had a magpie (see the previous post) visiting at times and was not to happy about it. It is a large bird. But take a look who is visiting today. A woodpecker. Seems like this winter is hard even to the large birds. :( 
The shots are taken different days. This little ball will not last long with peckers and magpies visiting. But I can´t have a large feeing. 3 years ago I had rats on the balcony because of it. On the third floor! Not fun. The shots are taken through a 3-glass window and I see it from my computer work station. I very much enjoy watching the movements outside the window. But large birds isn´t really an option.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas
