Last year our resident 5 crows pulled all of the little corn plants out of the ground as they were coming up. I do a CSA with my neighbor, and she was NOT happy. We had late corn last summer.

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

ubject: [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
hem on the ground and the war begins.Apparently it's a source of calcium for
hem. B Judy Flanders,Henniker "
Anyone have other feeder tip/experence to share?
