After a couple of weeks of watching the larger, somewhat meaner birds eat all the suet feed in my feeders, I bought two, small bird feeders, for small birds.
These have a little roof on them which overhangs the feeder and feed, with no place for the larger birds to sit on top of the feeder and empty it!
The smaller songbirds can feed and the larger ones will go elsewhere. At least eventually they will.
This morning they are out there trying to figure out a way of getting to the feeder and they are having no luck!
Meanwhile, the Woodpeckers, Chickadees, Baltimore Orioles, Cardinals, and some other birds, that I have yet to identify, are out there having a good old time.
It’s not that I am a mean bird feeder, it’s just that when you have grackles and crows coming and emptying a feeder in 20 minutes, something has to change!
So I am very happy on this 4th of July to watch my little friends enjoying the feed.
Oh yes, the window reflectors are on the way! Safety above all else!
