Do You Have a Bird Feeder?

Smith & Hawken at ShopStyle

Returning Spring birds are brightening up my backyard, and I try to keep my feeder full of seeds to keep the songbirds satisfied. Do you have a bird feeder around your home?

Yes, I have a bird feeder and a bird bath in the yard. And I have about 30 regulars who are very, very fat. I love watching them from chair while I have my morning tea. I have to refill it every day because the original 6 birds have told every friend and relative in the area. They have no fear of my Boston or my two cats, they have figured out how slow they are and that they can't climb pergolas.

No I wish I could have one. We've tried keeping them before but I gave up because every other critter wound up getting in the feeders and eating all the food and there wouldn't be anything left for the birds.

I only have hummingbird feeders near the house, and regular bird feeders in the flower beds at the edges of our yard - to avoid all of the bird poop all over everything.

Yes! We've had an Audubon birdfeeder w/baffle(very important against squirrels...that get all the excess that falls on the ground anyway) We live in a floor garden apt. but the management hasn't said anything negative since all of my neighbors, and their kids, Love it! We get the most beautiful cardinals and bluejays. And the Cutest Tufted Titmouses that are my favorite.

A bird feeder wouldn't exactly be a good idea as I own a Decker Terrier. Zena will hunt just about any rodent and chase anything in the yard, including birds.

I would love to have one, but my husband doesn't really like the idea of bird droppings on our balcony.

Other: No I don't have one but I love birds. But I have too damn many birds in my yard as it is and anyway, my cat kills them. Installing a bird feeder would just be cruel - for them AND me

I want one badly but I'm on the 3rd floor of an apt. Not sure if there is one I could hook on to a ledge or something. :(
