I simply go nuts for this statement! ;D  Is that on a bird twitter group? :)
We are talking about jelly not nuts. The nuts go jelly and the jelly goes nuts.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Am I the one confused? The birds go nuts for the jelly, and elijelly goes nuts for the jelly feeders

I had them for a few weeks, until I think 5 gray catbirds scared them away.
A friend that lives 3/4 of a mile away had them today.

Sorry, I was just making a (bad) baseball joke. As you were...

Amazon has this:https://smile.amazon.com/Kaytee-100033677-Nyjer-Thistle-Seed/dp/B0002AQQTW/ref=sr_1_3?crid=34FA6IWIBH6BZ&dchild=1&keywords=thistle+seed+for+birds&qid=1588857430&s=lawn-garden&sprefix=thistle%2Clawngarden%2C170&sr=1-3
Sure, but that's 3x the price of Walmart.
Afterwards, I found it in Walmart for less. So I tried to return the Amazon one. It was not returnable, so I chatted. They refunded it - without having to return it. So back goes the Walmart one, because in the end, Amazon IS cheaper. ;D

That.Was.Awesome.
You should see it live. These little suckers jumping tree to tree aggravating my dogs. One fell one time and almost was caught. He would have been dead meat.  :)

We were given a bird show this past shabbos in our tree next to our dining room- mother n father cardinal feeding 2 babies right in front of the window. Then some really small blue bird with a white dot on the wings pecking around. A few others we havenít seen before and then the most remarkable one: a small bird completely striped blue and white from beak to bottom! It was so cool! We had to delay our settlers game for this  ;)
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

That's awesome lol. Where are you located?

That blue and white bird sounds like a bluejay, but they're relatively large.
