Birds Not Using Birdfeeder
Hi everyone. I've been feeding the birds in my backyard for months now. Unfortunately, my birdfeeder broke (it was the type with a roof, cylinder and platform for feeding). On the advice of other bird enthusiasts, I replaced it with a Droll Yankee feeder for sunflower seeds, and added another Droll Yankee feeder for nyger thistle. I've not seen a bird near either one for about a week now. The sunflower seeds are half gone, however, due to squirrels jumping on the feeder. Each feeder hangs from a 7.5' tall shepherd's hook, is spaced about 8 feet away from the (now barren) trees. What is going on? Am I doing something wrong?
