Yes, I have... but I feed them only in winter, where there is snow, ice... between minus 15-0°, they are wild animals O**
now, come Black Birds to have a bath, idem for Eurasian Magpies, and Sparrows to have a drink...
the birdbaths are at 1 m. from the window, so I have to take picture through it ;-)
will post a bathing one -O
