I have a platform feeder as well as hanging ones. There's also hang suet, woodpecker blocks & nyger.
The squirrels aren't forgotten either. Whole peanuts & peanut halves are put out for them. They are less likely to make flying leaps to the platform if they have munchies on the ground.
I have a bricked patio/yard so I use the Patio Mix from the Wild Bird Center. Less shell mess & the birds eat it all. Not cheap, though.
Last year I kept track. YIKES! I went through over 2000 pounds or birdseed between Dec & April!
Now... if only there was I way I could claim these guys on my income tax!


PS- Happy Birthday!

2000 pounds. WOW. That's amazing. I wonder how much I go through. I bet not as much.
