Don't know why. Something I learned is they will feed while it is raining.Advertisement

Anyway, I went out to light up my grill on Monday afternoon and got buzzed by a red tailed hawk taking off out of the yard. It'd been on the ground near one of the feeders. I walked over to the general vicinity of where it had been standing in the yard, and found bits and pieces of at least two chipmunks. Then I found a leg and part of the tail of a squirrel underneath the big zelkova tree in my backyard.
Anyway, I refilled both feeders, and neither of them has been touched since Monday. I haven't seen a single bird or chipmunk, and I've seen exactly one squirrel. Wonder how long it is before I get any action back at my feeders.

It's the time of year to bring it back. What birds are you seeing?

May 30, 18, 02:24 PM #74I had an indigo bunting at my feeder over the weekend...the first time I've ever seen one, and it was pretty cool to see.
I've had a group of 3 or 4 common grackles that have totally housed the suet I've put in my feeders over the last couple of weeks. I'd like to figure out how to run those off because they don't let any other birds around while they're at the feeders.
May 30, 18, 02:28 PM #75I've thought about putting feeders in my neighbors yards to keep the birds out of mine. I can't keep my pool deck clean of bird crap. I've taken out every tree in my back yard which has helped but they still use my pool as a party place. Might have to have get me some cats.
