    Yep! I picked up my first one this year. They fill the things with maggots. Sad story about the wife, I only ever met her once and then when I went for the second clean I saw sympathy cards in the window, she had died from a stroke. I still clean them for the husband but feel so sorry for him. Back to the bird feeder though, this week it was empty, so I took my chances and put it on the floor below. I'm hoping he's not going to put it back up but I'll see next month.
