Bird table, Florida style

After England's wettest summer in a hundred years, and with my fenland garden devoid of birds at the moment (not sure why), it was poignant to receive the above photograph from my Floridan grandson, Deniz. He and his father knocked the birdtable up from scrap wood, and in less than the time it takes to say "Cyanocitta cristata" - or "Cardinalis cardinalis" for that matter - they had birds feeding on it.
I say "poignant", but there are more brutal adjectives I could use....
