And I thought I spend too much on birds!

I spend a lot of money feeding birds and sometimes think I'm a little nuts to do so. But some rich Chinese guy just paid a record $1.9 million for a racing pigeon from Belgium. He's supposedly the same guy who paid well over a million for the previous highest priced bird. I guess my $22 for 50 pounds of black-oil sunflower seed ain't so bad, and I don't even have to keep track of where my birds have raced off to. ;)

Man o man, yeah that is a guy who is into his hobby.

We feed the birds, too, year round. Black oil sunflower in two feeders, and a wild-bird mix in another...and hummingbird juice in 2 feeders during the Spring thru Fall. I thought it was a lot of money before I read your post. Thanks for setting me straight!
