My hubby put an upside down pot saucer under one of our feeders that is outside the fence and it stopped the squirrels but now the deer have learned to stand on two feet and tip the feeder which pours the seed out onto the ground.lol
Nutsaboutnature, thanks for mentioning the safflower seeds. I'll have to get some for my doves. Great photos of your birds. I wish our woodpeckers would come to the sunflower seed feeder but the only thing they'll eat here is when I have the peanut butter log out in the colder months.
Here's a photo of "Stubby", a Brewer's Blackbird that I've been photographing on my deck since 2009, a female Red-winged Blackbird and a Black-headed Grosbeak that looks like its been eating my neighbor's blackberries.
