I added a birdfeeder to my yard a few weeks back. well, its finally gaining a following. yesterday i had: about 6 black capped chickadees, 4 mourning doves, a bonded pair of cardinals and what appeared to be their two female offspring, and toward the end of the feeding session a blue jay and a squirrel. gotta get a bigger feeder, the big birds cant seem to land and eat comfortably on the feeder. and the squirrel cant figure out how to get to it. he was running back and forth with his tail twitching in aggravation.  laugh

I'll get more pics for ya as i get the chance. but here's a few:

Nice feeder!!  thumb
 Wish mine was squirrle proof!
The squirrels fogured out how to get into my feeder (tube feeder) and they empty it fairly quickly. I always pour a pile of seed on the ground for the doves and larger birds. I also put out cracked corn which the larger birds seem to go through quickly.

I love the feeder. I have a whole regular crew that comes here. My pair of mourning doves have been coming for 3 years. I have cardinals and blue jays too. I love the sass on the jays. The females look so drab as do the cardinal girls.
