Couldn't figure out why I was seeing so many birds, yet none were coming to the feeder. Then it dawned on me that the 'locals' were used to a finer menu than the fast food type seed that was in the feeder. They also needed a different style feeder (platform) so they could stand on it. So with an empty clementines box spray paint and a couple bungy cords there ya go. The new place to dine in town. Trust me, you don't go for the Ambiance, you go for the food!
