Backyard Bullies are Back

Blackbirds, starlings, grackles, they're back. I don't mind the red winged black birds, they are pretty and have a beautiful song, but the others I can do without. They chase my songbirds from the feeders, and empty it out so quickly. They'll toss the seed out of the feeder, and the ones on the ground clean it up. It's so frustrating! I wish there were a feeder that was black bird resistant!

I have to agree with Catherine.. starlings are truly naughty birds!

Hmmmm..bullies of any kind are a pain in the arse! Hahaha! Hope they leave soon to go play in another yard..

They'll probably leave soon and go somewhere else don't you think? While they're there, though, they're pains.

Sounds like you need a "black bird dog" they just run up and chase them all away every time they land on the bird feeder. I don't know if there is such a thing but sounds good huh?!
