safe keeping babies nest from prey

Is keeping a feeder 15' from nest harming or attracting prey? I heard it helped momma so she wouldn't have to travel far or exposse babies to prey. I have plenty of natural flowers nearby, however felt this would help her.

There are 2 babies in the nest that appear to be ready in about a week to take flight. Many crows are in our area. Nest is somewhat sheltered inlet on front porch.

Please advise asap...thanks.

getting rid of crows

When the crows come to my yard I have my water pressure high & my garden hose with a jet stream spray near by. I turn on the hose & wait for them to come close and spray them with the jet stream....they hate it! This has helped the crows stat away from our hummingbird & wren nests.
