How is everyone doing? How are your feeders? Are you having any problems? Any new birds? Missing birds you seen in the past?
I'm having problems keeping one of my feeder poles firmly in the ground. I'm seriously thinking of getting hangers that attach to the fence. Our yard is small and it would make it easier to mow without the poles and pile of cement chunks trying to hold the poles up in the middle of the yard. Does anyone have any products like that they're familiar with?
I have the same trouble with my bird houses that are on posts. One even fell over with the bird house on it. I checked them all the make sure their stable and then brace the ones the are not. I found that nothing can beat the wind and we had lots this winter.
I put my feeder right in front of my bay window last year and it's on the east so the wind doesn't bother it too much. I had to brace it though with a 2x4 though because i had trouble with squirrels. I can't find a squirrel baffle thats any good either. Nothing is without problems I'm afraid.
Isn't that the truth!
