Birds are smart!! The same flat-bed open feeder, in the same location, but (IMHO) the birds recognize the appearance is different. I haven’t seen a single bird on the feeders this morning!! Of course, they will adjust to the new arrangement. And, I didn’t “need” another place to hang bird feeders because I have tree limbs and Shepherd’s Hooks. This “feeding station” appealed to me so I ordered it on-line. Next, I’ll join Operation Feeder Watch.
