Not only do we get birds at the feeders but squirrels and deer! Now that it’s getting colder out the deer will be more frequent at the feeders. And when there’s snow on the ground it’s likely they’ll munch on the bushes right outside the bay window.
We finally have the squirrels taken care of. One feeder has a section that closes when too much weight it on it so the squirrels can’t get any food. And our tray feeder has a baffle on it and nothing closeby for squirrels to climb and jump from to reach the feeder. Although this doesn’t stop them from trying.
The deer try and lick seed out of the feeder. Since they’re not putting weight on the part that closes keeping squirrels from stealing seed they’re able get to their prize. I have found that they’re not as fond of sunflower seeds compared to other kinds of seed, especially seed mixed with corn.
