Question Hello from Manhattan, KS

I love to feed song birds. I do not like feeding the pesky grackels. Does anyone know how to prevent them from "hogging" our feeders?

Hi Larry,

A warm welcome to BirdForum from all the Moderators and Admin.

No Grackles here so can't help but I'm sure someone from your side of the pond can

Hi Larry, Welcome to BirdForum. We are glad to have you join us in our appreciation of the wild birds.

Sometimes it seems we just have to "learn to live" with those grackles, sparrows and squirrels!
