These are the metal ones. Holds 10 lbs of seed. It's the tray catching the water.

We got some cardinals, and had 3 bluejays at one time.  They are hitting it hard.    

 

No pics, phone doesnt' get the job done.

The goldfinches have really been hitting my feeders hard the last week or so. Saw a red wing blackbird yesterday...thought they were all gone for the season. Have also had a mystery bird showing up occasionally. I suspect it’s a palm warbler.

Are you still up north on Vermillion Del? 

 

I have to wait for the bears to go into hibernation before I can put any feeders out yet. I have sprinkled a few sunflower seeds on the railings of our deck and have gotten chickadees, rose breasted nuthatches and blue jays but I just don't feel comfortable with feeders yet.

Nope, back in Rochester.    No bears to bother my feeders only deer, racoons, and possums.   Deer came this afternoon, she was frustrated since I moved the feeders higher since she emptied them last.   So, she walked off and munched on my apple trees a while then meandered off.

these 3 still hang out a lot together. the slinkys on the feeders work sweet. once in a while one will get to the top but pretty rare. took 3 suets off trees and put on plants hangers. Much better keeping squirrels off. loaded one of the old ones 2 days ago on a tree for fun to check and gone in a day.

Is there any type of birds that will still be migrating thru central Minnesota this year? I didn't even get Juncos this year unless they are still coming. Everything gone but the winter regulars, cardinals, a few blue jays, and those stupid long neck woodpeckers. Those little house finches went from emptying 2 tube feeders a day to zero, about an inch down in the tube a week. Those things all left together it appears.

I’m refilling my sunflower chips everyday! My yard is full of goldfinches, chickadees, purple finches, juncos, mourning doves, cardinals, blue jays, 4 species of woodpeckers, and nuthatches. The only thing that disappeared was the chipping sparrows.
