Dozens? For a while we were keeping three cats happy with the ... ah...daily 
fall out.

One cat is big at 17# and not fat. I've seen him take birds off the feeder 
at 7 feet above ground. He got smart too. The old cats were just too old to 
even try his antics, but when let out they'd go sit under the living room 
window. Then he joined them. Let 'em out and in a couple of minutes all 
three would be sitting side-by-side on the land scape timbers under the 
window just waiting.  Now a Hawk has discovered that if he comes in from the 
east the dumb ones will head west directly at the house, have to change 
direction and he has easy pickings.

Now if I could just get that big cat to go sit on the 6-meter beam when the 
Cormorants come to roost. I'd even put any extra in the freezer for him.
