Does anyone have a bird feeder here? What kind do you have and what kind of birds are there to attract here?

I'm from Ohio and had bird feeders to attract Robins, Cardinals, Humming Birds etc. ... and squirrels got their fair share too lol.

Humming bird feeders are fine but give anything that may attract pigeons some serious consideration before doing so.
Especially true if houses have eves and/or tile roofs in your neighborhood.

PIGEONS ARE SO OBNOXIOUS!! Cost me $700 to have bird stops installed on my tile roof. And now they're trying to build their nests elsewhere. Even on the blades of the ceiling fan on my covered patio. I don't even have to turn it on; the wind spins it around. And they're going to lay eggs there. Biologists must need a microscope to detect their brains.

Do you remember Jonathan, from this board? When our chicken coop suddenly became a point of interest to a couple of pigeons, he soaked them with the hose every time. Word got around in the birdie community, and we had no more pigeons.

Ps. The pigeons would look so indignant!

The main problem with bird feeders is that you can't selectively choose which ones you want to show up. The lady next door feeds the birds and seeing the cardinals and blue jays is nice. Even the robins. Then the sparrows show up and there goes the neighborhood.

Having pigeons would drive me nuts. Thankfully not too many of those filthy things show up and when they do, the dog does a good job of chasing them away.

I never understood this thinking. ALL of the birds are hungry and thirsty. It seems a bit sad to only want to feed the pretty ones.


Hummingbird feeders are not generally accessible by other birds, though, they just can't usually access the "juice". I do see oriels at my hummingbird feeder though. They love the sweet stuff.
