We feed American Crows. It drives the farmers crazy! (just kidding!!) Seriously, to keep the 200 or so resident crows on our property from devouring all of our songbird feeder food, we built a crow feeder platform. We use cheap dry dog food, and it's fun to watch corvids.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Good Bird feeder tip
I found this on the NH birds list and tried it out this morning after breakfast,
It worked. a very nice feeder tip. Here is what the woman had to say:
"Blue jays love to eat egg shells in the winter.I just crumble them and throw
them on the ground and the war begins.Apparently it's a source of calcium for
them. B Judy Flanders,Henniker "
Anyone have other feeder tip/experence to share?
