OK, well, we can't see them, but we can hear them! We have watched BirdMom and BirdDad flying to that box with food in their mouths and each time one of them goes inside the hole, it sounds like a little party is going on in there! So much cheep-cheeping!! Don't worry though, we ONLY WATCH the birds...that is all - we swear (our Mom has a VERY STRICT rule that we may only look at but NEVER TOUCH BIRDS)! We like BirdTV!
