I put food out for the birds and every morning we get up and the feeder is empty.Now we know why. Getting rather expensive but they are cute.
All toll there is 4 of them all about the same size.
Took these pictures this evening through the glass in the back door. Wish they would of been clearer.

Bird seed can get expensive even without your visitors. So far this winter, I've gone through about $60 in seed between the birds and the squirrels. That's not counting the $60 I spent on all the new feeders. Next up is a solar powered water fountain with heater for winter use. Got no clue where all that $$$$ is going to come from. Sugar water in the summer for the hummingbirds is a lot cheaper, even with 7 hummer feeders going.
Up until the last few years, I had no idea how many hours I could spend a day, just watching birds, squirrels and rabbits. I spent so many hours last summer, watchin them, I had to go out an buy a more comfortable chair to sit in.

I started putting out corn to distract the squirrels. They're staying out of the bird feeders so far. Doves do a pretty good job on the corn also.

You can get red pepper about 2 tsp/ 3-5lbs of feed. The birds find it to be sweet, but deer and squirrels dont. It wont hurt them, but will send em packing. They make a commercial squirrel away packet you can add, but its just ground cayenne pepper anyway.
