Well, I either have fatty birds, or they have started to tell their friends because I can't keep bird seed in the house! I go through over 15 pounds of seed (regular seed, plus sunflower seeds, plus thistle) in one week! Not to mention 2 of the suet bricks about every two weeks.
I was in WalMart yesterday picking up birdseed (20 lbs!) and I noticed some really nice feeders on the top shelf. When we had the blizzard in February, my feeders took a beating. I really like this one because the sunflower seeds are always the first to go because we have a lot of cardinals and blue jays. It actually measures about two feet tall and 4 inches in diameter. My current one is only one foot tall and 2.5 inches in diameter. Isn't it neat?
I also really like this one for the regular seed. It's a lot prettier in person and it looks like it will hold the same amount of seed my current barn feeder holds. The only problem with this one is that there is no place for the suet bricks, so I would need to get a holder specifically for those. By the way, the woodpeckers really like the peanut butter and fruit suet!
I guess I know what I will be buying when the summer clearance sale starts!
