Thanks for your reply, Cher. I decided to take down the sparrow spooker today & he’s back up in the tree or on top of the box when she’s in it. I hate to go without the sparrow spooker, but he seems to be spooked himself. I realize that he won’t always be around during this time, but these two have been inseparable since I 1st saw them last Spring. He truly was ignoring her for 4 straight days. Do you think I should try to reintroduce the sparrow spooker? I could hang two streamers at a time per day until all six are hanging by tying others up, but I already did this when I noticed his hesitancy originally. Once all the strands were hanging, he disappeared. Again, I hate not to try & protect them from sparrows, but want him to be there to help her. Any ideas? Anybody? I’m all ears!

PS- Cher, love the little bird cartoon caricatures. Too cute!
