Hehe... we actually had ice too in ours. :-)

I think the culprit was that the manufactures tag was sitting over the venting
plug. At least I think it was a venting plug. I have that tag sitting on my
monitor at work these days. Ah well.

Oh, those lovely birds! :-)

The non-optimal placement we have for our antenna just happends to make it
fairly uninteresting for birds. There are better sit-and-enjoy-the-view spots
for the featherbolls to use. I've actually never seen one sit there.

Cheers,
Magnus
