Bird Feeder Thief

I have been wondering why I can't keep my bird feeders full. I had just filled all my feeders and caught this 'upsidedown furry greybird' having lunch. I snapped these through the kitchen window.

I know what would fix your problem. A rock.

I gave up trying to keep the squirrels off of my feeders. I bought squirrel "proof" ones. Yeah right! The squirrel would have to way 10 pounds for it to work. Although, I did by a bag of squirrel proof seed and they didn't like it so I did have one feeder that was just for the birds! LOL!

Hi Lefty and Mrs Rule;

Deep in the cockles of my heart I have a soft spot for squirrels. I don't mind them eating my bird food one little bit. Even the big greys don't take off anymore when I step out on the back deck. The little reds pratically climb up my legs to get to the feeders when I put them up first thing in the mnorning. I take the two sunflower seed feeders every night because the coons were really making a mess and wasting more than they ate.

My Mom has these HUGE squirrels back home and she feeds them nuts. I kept thinking they were going to lunge at me! But they are pretty tame and come a runnin' when she comes out. Kind of like pets. It's pretty cute.

My other problem here are the deer. Do you have that there? They too make a huge mess. Mr. Thirds raised my feeders up high so that the deer have to really work at it to eat. For the most part, the don't bother.

Yes we have plenty of deer here but so far they have left our flower gardens alone. Not so for my vegetable garden which I no longer have.
