Thread: Bird Feeders

    Bird Feeders

    Do you have any, what do you put in them and what kind of birds do they attract? I will be putting out the hummingbird feeder soon. :)

    We don't do bird feeders. We used to have a next door neighbor who did and it made our yard a breeding ground for weeds. I do love to see the birds though.

    We had 4 Eastern Meadowlawks come in. They winter in Central America and they were on the few bare spots we have up here.

    I have seeded bird feeder, buy assorted bird seed mixture...placed on a shepherds hook with a slinky to keep squirrels off....I love to watch them while having morning coffee....I also have, (need to put out now), a hummingbird feeder...it also is on a shepherds hook in front of the sunroom window close to the bee hive...apparently the bees don't mind or the humming birds....

    I feed the deer to keep them out of the bird area. Pretty sure that wont work with the bears.

    Let me know if the squirrels defeat your slinky measures. I got a kick watching the videos and have wondered how long or if the squirrels can work through it. I have a squirrel-proof caged feeder and have found the reds content to eat the spillage underneath.

    Just saw this. I might make one this summer when my pond finally thaws out.

    I almost tried the collander and surgical tubing slingshot trick, just never got around to it.

    Here is a bird I’ve not seen before. Hiding in the silver maple but visible, the yellow-billed cuckoo. Handsome bird.

    Here is a picture (not mine)...

You can forget about unexpected repair costs with an extended service contract for your Saab. Many vehicle repairs can cost thousands of dollars in unexpected expense, now may be the time to consider an extended service plan for your vehicle.
