How to keep tube birdfeeder bottom from growing sprouts?
Don't know if this is right forum, but saw lots of birdfeeder posts.
Anyone have a solution for blocking up the bottom of the tube type, like creating a false bottom? With my type, after the bottom hole there's about 3" of seed that birds can't get to. It just sits there, wasted and ends up growing sprouts. I drilled drainage holes in very bottom but still, the seed gets wet.
If they were eating it empty it every day, I'd throw that part on the ground. But I don't have to fill it real often.
Tried putting gravel in to raise the level of seed but ended up with gravel melded together with sprouts. Had a heck of a time cleaning it out today.
I'm sure I could use smaller pebbles or even sand, maybe, but wondering if anyone has a genius idea I haven't thought of :)
