Last feeding

October 11, 2016, my mom's birthday (and my brother bob's)
I filled the feeders one last time before I head to Europe. When I return, feeding time will likely be over and I will get everything ready for winter.
Here comes another winter - I slid the bottom board in 1/2 way, mouse guard is on, have not drilled an escape hole yet.
