Diverse feeder for ALL birds. By gm

Great feeder that draws the most variety! Just about every bird will feed off this. Since deploying this one I have seen birds that I have never observed feeding off the other types of feeders. Species such as mocking birds, towhees and other ground feeding birds all readily feed from this type of feeder. For whatever reason, some species just don't ever figure out the other type feeders like mesh ,tubes and the like. That is not the case with this one. I have mine on the deck in front of a glass sliding door very close to the house since the placement detracts grackles from approaching it and gobbling up all the food. I have installed Acopian Bird savers on the door to keep birds from colliding with the glass. Please google Acopian Bird savers if you are not aware of this important bird saving device as it is a MUST if you place this close to any glass. I use shelled peanuts, sunflower seed and unshelled peanuts which seems to satisfy all birds.

Q.Do you sell seed saucers to attach beneath a bird feeder? I have a Perky Pet upside down finch feeder. As with most bird feeders, seeds fall out of the feeder and onto the ground attracting mice, etc.
