Be careful out there--it's salmonella season!

We finches have to trust that people will keep their feeders clean and the ground under them raked. I know I do my best to pick up only clean seed, but when a bazillion other guys have been there before me, it's hard to be sure no one's gone to the bathroom in there, and I happen to be one of the millions who love eating on the ground. It sucks that this bacteria lives in the dirt.
