Can You Recommend Someone for Some Yard Work?

I need someone to haul thorny limbs to be composted (are thorny limbs allowed?) and to pull out a kinda large pyrecantha bush. I cut it down to about 5", as low as my pruners would cut. I want someone I can trust to really take them to the right place, not just dump them somewhere ellegally. I'm thinking maybe a winch could be used to pull the pyrecantha out of the ground?? It's about 8-10 feet wide at the top, 6-8 feet at the base, with multiple trunks.  It is right next to the front of the…See More

Roadrunners and Birdfeeder question

Posted on February 11, 2009 at 8:30pm 0 Comments

I found some 1/2"-3/4" black "nuggets" (irregular, squarish) in my birdfeeder when I refilled it. I found some last winter also. They are solid, dry but very firm and cohesive, very black, no obvious seeds or bones. They are inside the hopper feeder. I'm trying to figure out who leaves them. I have never seen bird droppings or pellets like this but know of no mammals which would be pooping at the feeder.
