Gaunt Gert and Portly Portia knew the drill.  Wait for the squirrels to finish eating their fill of peanuts and the suet/seed ball was theirs. It was too bad that Gert had agreed, yet again, to stand watch while Portia dined first. 

Glass birds. I've wanted to find one or two to paint, but have had no luck, so I borrowed these two.  It was just dumb luck that they'd both be blue, rather ... bleu?  Gert, here, is a frosted Lalique Blue Jay.  Portia is a hand blown beauty from the sixties.
