Red Bellied

by Marsha Price Rhodes
(Deer Park, Texas)

We have a nesting pair in our back yard tree. They made a nest in a large cut limb right above our large wind chimes. The Starlings have been a problem.

We are trying to keep the starlings away. The female is finishing the nest. We hope they are able to stay and the starlings wont.
I feed peanut suit, orange suit, sunflower seeds, corn, peanuts and safflower seed. Suit balls 3 also. I also have a ornamental pond with a water fall in the back yard and 3 bird baths.

Red Bellies and Starlings NEW
by: Art

Sounds like your Red Bellies have everything they could want,as far as Starlings there a Pain in everyones area,My Saffloweer seed I just put out in a Covered Platform feeder the Starlings and most other birds don't care for it anyway,My other Feeders for Sunflower seed peanuts Etc I Use caged feeders Starlings cant get in and get discouraged fast and seek food elsewhere,While the woodpeckers can access easily,My Suet feeders are caged and hang flat so the woodpeckers and other hanging birds can feed from bottom, but not starlings.... if you check back on a few posts I sent in there are Pictures of my Feeders That Brook requested Take a look,Enjoy your Red Bellies I certainly enjoy ours......Art
