feeders
by: glenn

I have a 40 foot wire between 2 trees which my feeders hang from. They are about 3 feet apart,but in between them I also have hanging logs with 3 inches to 4 inches limbs on them for perches.
They hang about 4 feet from the ground. This time of year it's nothing to see 50 or more birds of several different kinds feeding at the same time.

And more every year. I have had the feeders like this nearly 8 years. There are so many birds that hawks and falcons come to hunt them. But they are only a few feet from protective cover.

Thanks for sharing, Glenn. (Would love to see a photo of your feeders and birds.) You point out an important fact; in that each year you have more and more birds. Birds will return to the same feeders every year - and they tend to tweet their friends.
