RAMSEY - The New Jersey couple that made headlines after they were fined for having a bird feeder in their backyard can breathe a little easier today.

Neighbors had complained Alfred and Annette Rockefeller were attracting too many animals to their home in Ramsey.

Alfred Rockefeller says that with his limited mobility, he spends much of his day sitting in his kitchen, watching birds and other wildlife outside.

The couple faced hundreds of dollars in fines after the township found it illegal to have a wire wreath-style feeder near their deck.

Now a judge has dismissed the ticket, and the couple can now put up their bird feeder again.
