My yard is tiny, but I crammed in some birdfeeders.
From left to right there's
- A hummingbird feeder
- Thistle Sock
- Suet feeder
- Nesting material ball
- Big Fancy Expensive Thistle Feeder (the sock is still more popular)
- All purpose feeder (nuts, sunflower seeds etc..)
The squirrel has his own feeder. It's a little box of peanuts. He has to lift the lid to get them.
There's a crow who shakes me down for handouts too...
...and a mockingbird who chases him off.
On Saturday I got off work early and snuck into the yard, eager to see if I'd catch any new species feeding at that time of day...
...and found Jumbo Super Rat chomping away!
Now I sprinkle the feeder with ground hot pepper to keep him away from it.
