i have been throwing the fids' leftovers into the yard for a while. for the wild birdies. but i worry, cause i DO have cats. and well, even well fed cats are predators. so i finally bought a birdfeeder that was on clearance a couple weeks ago. its so cute, a little red schoolhouse. it has a little feeding trough that goes all the way around. so i hung it from the tree limb in front of my window, filled it with wild bird seed, and waited. now we all know birds are cautious by nature. so they stayed away from the scary red thing in the tree.  :deer:  well, they finally found my feeder yesterday. and today they've been in and out. they feed for bout 20 mins, then leave for bout 30. feed for 20 leave for 30. feed for 15 then they left and were gone nearly an hour.  think  i thought, okay, makes sense morning feeding time is over. the little guys came back and brought friends with 'em! now, i've watched most of the day. and i guess it could be a bunch of the same species of bird but its two little guys that seem to be spending the majority of time in the feeder....now i'm worrying. i know that seed isnt a balanced diet for any bird. so now i'm worrying that i'm contributing to the delinquency of wildlifesad8

know why they're leaving? They are chasing bugs and finding grubs to supplement the seed.   smile3

Enjoy that feeder!

All our leftover seed/pellet goes into a container and I feed the "outsiders" every am!  I love it and all are welcome!  I am sure it is a fine supplement or desert for them thumb  It's great watching all the different critters come...we have a disabled squirrel.....he doesn't have use of this left "hand" but the arm works and he gets and eats his treats just fine....and makes a very quick get away if he "hears" me watching him laffhrd  Have fun watching your feeder!  I know they are grateful!
