That's the trouble - I really wish to feed the birds, but what with magpies, squirrels, and pigeons really feel I'm onto a losing battle!! There were 6 magpies in our garden this morning, two trying to balance on the feeder (luckily they can't eat from it, it closes at their weight, but they scare the small birds I do want away!). Our robin follows me down to the greenhouse to complain if they hang around too long, so that I will go and shoo them off so he and the other little ones can feed. If I could find something that would render the 3 of them sterile I'd use it like a shot - as it is, just keep fighting the good fight!
