Hi - my garden has been overtaken this year by a big gang of adolescent starlings. They eat all of the food as soon as I put it down, they constantly fight with other little birds to discourage them from using the feeders, they squeal all the time and fight with each other, causing them to drop the seed all over the place meaning I have to weed all the time. They used to only use the big tray of suet I put out especially for them, but now they are using the hanging seed feeders and even trying to hang onto the peanut feeder. I've bought really small feeders which I hoped that they couldn't get into but it didn't work, they squeeze themselve into them, and I've made plastic covers for a couple of the suet feeders so that only hanging birds can use them, but they have got around that too. Before I stop feeding the birds completely, just wondered if anyone had come up with any ways of getting rid of them? They even made their way into my attic and I had to have all my upstairs bathroom vents replaced!
Any bright ideas?Jump to latest post
