The Bird Feeder

I learned this off the "Cherish the Ladies" album, "At Home". It is track 1 and is the second tune in the set: Limerick Lasses, The Bird Feeder, The Bank of Ireland, and Grampa’s Ceili Band. I found it credited to Joanie Madden. I learned it first and then looked it up here and found that it had not been transcribed so I joined "thesession" to share it.

This is my first try at ABC notation and I think I did OK but I just couldn’t find a way to write eighth note triplets. If someone can help with this I’d appreciate it and I’ll edit it later if I’m able. Also, some of the repeated notes are cuts and I think there may be a better way to represent them(?) Otherwise, I think the notes are pretty accurate. I didn’t quite hear the d# the first time through but it is definitely there.

Ref. Triplets in ABC. Try adding (3 before the three triplet notes
