Solving Blackbird Problems

Sometimes you just have too many blackbirds, doves and pigeons. They can eat more than their share of food and chase other birds away. However, there are several solutions to keep these birds from monopolizing feeders.

The Right Food

Many birds will sweep through seed blends to find the seed they want to eat. Uneaten seed gets tossed to the ground. By offering the right blend for the feeding situation, you can reduce the mess that accumulates below the feeder and eliminate the problem birds that hang around the area.

Try offering:

  • blends loaded with oil sunflower. They are less likely to be picked through and swept to the ground.
  • safflower. It's a small, white seed that is high in protein and fat. Many of your favorite birds will readily eat safflower; blackbirds, like starlings and grackles, typically do not.
  • a no-mess blend, preferably without millet, and/or a high quality blend that contains sunflower and safflower.

Avoid offering:

  • discount blends with cereals and fillers, such as wheat, oats, barely, milo and flax seed. These just end up in a pile under feeders.
  • corn, especially cracked corn. Blackbirds, doves and pigeons love it.

Feeder Solutions

Though adding a tray to the bottom of a seed tube or finch feeder will minimize mess, it allows larger birds, like pigeons and doves, to dine easily. Deter larger birds from visiting your existing feeder by adding an On-Guard™ wire mesh cage. Our On-Guard solutions are designed to allow smaller birds access but prevent doves, pigeons, even blackbirds from reaching the food in a feeder. We offer a variety of cages that easily fit on our seed tube, finch, peanut, suet and some of our specialty feeders.

Solution Feeders

We offer a variety of feeders that help you feed only the birds you want.

  • EcoTough® Upside-down Suet Feeder - This feeder is designed to allow birds to feed from below, a comfortable practice for woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees and other clinging birds but difficult for starlings.
  • Dinner Bell™ feeder - Use this versatile feeder to offer a number of different foods. The Dinner Bell's adjustable dome can be raised and lowered to allow access for smaller birds.
  • The Eliminator™ and Fundamentals Squirrel-proof feeders. Both of these feeders are weight-sensitive and will close off access to the food when heavier visitors, such as squirrels, pigeons and most doves, sit on a perch.

 

All Seasons Hobby Guide

A Hobby for All Seasons

The average backyard may be visited regularly by 15 to 20 different bird species. However, a bird-friendly yard can attract up to 100 or more different species. To attract the greatest number of bird species, just provide at least one of each of these habitat elements: food, water, cover and places to raise their young. To find out more information about the bird activity in our area, visit our store.

Solving Squirrel Problems
Take delight not only in seeing the finches, chickadees and other colorful birds you enjoy, but also in frustrating the squirrels.
  • Safflower is a small, white seed that is high in protein and fat. Most song birds eat safflower, however, starlings, grackles and squirrels typically do not.
  • With our On Guard™ cages, you control the size of bird that dines at your feeder. They allow small birds to go in and out to get their seed but stop larger birds and animals from entering. Our cages will fit a variety of feeder styles and sizes.
  • The Eliminator™ allows you to stop squirrels from eating your seed. Featuring unique, weight-sensitive technology, the feeder's seed ports are closed when a squirrel touches the perch ring.
  • Our Advanced Pole System® (APS) Squirrel Baffle is designed to help make your bird feeding station squirrel-resistant.

 

 

WBU Eliminator™ Squirrel Proof Feeder

Protect your seed bounty from squirrels with our Eliminator. When a squirrel touches the perch ring, its weight closes the seed ports, foiling its seed-stealing plot. The Eliminator's unique technology allows you to set the sensitivity level, so you can also exclude large birds such as pigeons or doves.

It's easy to hang, holds three and a half quarts of seed and is backed with a limited lifetime guarantee. This feeder also features a special seed ventilation system that helps keep seed fresher.

The Eliminator can be disassembled and assembled with no tools, and all of its parts are top shelf dishwasher safe.

 

 

WBU Fundamentals Squirrel Proof Feeder

So long squirrels! Our Fundamentals Squirrel-Proof Feeder is weight-sensitive, so when a squirrel gets on the feeder the feeding ports close, denying access to the seed. Birds can use the four perches, or they can cling to the metal shroud to feed.

The patented Seed Tube Ventilation System™ that keeps seed dry and fresh is also included. It's easy to clean and has a two-year limited warranty including protection against squirrel damage.
