    We put bird feeders up in the past, but after deer and raccoons find them, it's over.

    I have tons of feeders and houses. We put baffles on the poles where I hang the feeders so the squirrels can't climb up and get into them. The finches take over the purple martin house every year and are already starting to move into it. I need to clean out the bluebird houses as I am starting to see them outside my windows.

    I put out mostly a bird seed mix and suet cakes and then add oriole feeders in the summer that the hummingbirds and orioles both hit. I used to just do the hummingbird feeders but the orioles would try to feed from them and the holes were too small for their beaks.

    The deer leave the bird feeders alone for the most part because I put out corn for them in another area. The wild turkeys eat most of what the songbirds kick out on the ground.

    The squirrels help the deer with their corn as do the bunnies and raccoons. I seem to have all sorts of wildlife here freeloading on a daily basis.

    Saw another pileated woodpecker a couple of days ago. We apparently have a few trees with ants in them as they are going nuts drilling holes in them. More firewood....

    If I weren’t in the middle of town, I’d get the starlings, too. Since I can’t, I watch them instead.

    It is not legal to shoot grackles - they are native birds. Same with RWBBs. They can be annoying, but you can't legally hurt them.

    It is always open season on starlings and house sparrows.

    People are using the term "finch," but I'm not sure what they mean. Goldfinches? House finches? Purple finches?

    I believe the finches we have here are the house finches. I see gold finches but not in the houses.

    Squirrels can't get to the feeders or trash pandas. I have a few trail cameras up and found out how sneeky they both are. Relocsted some coons and possums
