 Feed the Birds (Posted on 2003-11-28)
Bird feeders are much appreciated by our feathered friends during the cold winter months. One chilly morning, Mrs. Allison and four neighbors each filled her feeder with a different kind of food and watched a different type of bird come for a bite.

From the information given, determine the number on each woman's house, the type of food she put out, and which bird she saw.
1. Cake crumbs were put out by Mrs. Brewer's next-door neighbor, while Mrs. Chandler put out toast.

2. Mrs. Emery, who did not see a sparrow, lives at number 8. Mrs. Dennis is not at number 10.

3. Mrs. Allison was visited by a thrush, while a robin enjoyed a taste of suet.

4. Birdseed was put out at the house located between the one where a cardinal ate and the one visited by a sparrow.

5. The blackbird visited the bird feeder at number 2, which was not filled with bread.
