Big bird, small feeder...

In October and into early November, we have had frequent visits from two seperate groups of Sandhill Cranes, a pair and a group of three. The first pair were obviously old pros at bird feeders and soon found the ones in the garden. It took only two visits from these magnificent birds for them to clean out the small feeder you see in the photo.

My apologies for the poor image quality, it was taken through a dirty window. Any time I would go outside to photograph them eating from the feeder, they would walk away from it. I however did find it somewhat hysterical to see a bird of their sheer size eating from a feeder designed for small songbirds etc.
