I've lost my bird feeder Login/Join

to a Mockingbird. It drives every other bird off and keeps it all to itself. I guess the cold weather has narrowed its food choices down to the suet.
I starting to miss seeing the bluebirds, titmice, chickadees and others. A brave wren will sneak a little until attacked.

A minor annoyance I know Roll Eyes

Starlings here, always in packs to intimidate the other birds.

I understand a woman in Alabama has written a guide to get rid if it but I don't really want to kill it. Smile

Could be worse... Eek

Right outside my living room window. Went to something I can bring in every night.

I've had a bear visit my feeder that is at my shack in the N.GA. mountains a couple of times.
It had to go right by my open bedroom door (just a screen as a barrier!). They make considerably more noise than a possum or stray cat .

Started leaving a little glass in that hole after one confrontation. BTW a black bear won't hesitate jumping off a six foot deck if startled.

DAMN, I'm slow. Probably scanned by this a half-dozen times and the dime just now dropped...

A bear gets mine from time to time, too. And the deer lick it until its empty.
Recently, a horde of Chickadees are wearing it out.
And the Alabama lady's book was made into a movie!

Gary Cooper or Gregory Peck. I get those two confused a lot.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

I had the pine siskins two years ago. They moved on and didn't return. Apparently they show up some years and not others. Perhaps yours will move on eventually.

In Western NY we gave up on bird feeders. The black bears would jerk them down and rip them apart.

They also loved those pressed seed/suet/fat hanging things. Yogi would rip 'em down and walk around eating them like popsickles.

Put up a hummingbird feeder.



“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

We take our bird feeders down every evening and store them in a critter proof box overnight. Raccoons are the main culprits that destroy feeders in our neck of the woods. While it's somewhat of a bother, that system has worked out fine for us.

We don't really have any birds that dominate the feeders. We have had some starlings pass through and briefly stop by but the Blue Jays and Red Bellied Woodpeckers run them off.

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Monkey, you could have taken that picture on my front stoop. Got a little red squirrel that gets pissy at me if I don't put the seed out at the crack of dawn.

I lost my nice, 2 foot long double sided grill brush to a possum.

It's the middle of winter here but did a nice rib eye on the BGE. Later when I was locking the doors I hit the flood lights to see what was going on outside and opened the slider.
"Nothing out here but us possum."
So I went to bed and the next day my grill brush was gone.
Maybe I'll find it in spring after the thaw.
As much as hate them, I hope he didn't eat any of the wires.
