After two incidents of rats in my garden, I took the Pest Control man's advice and stopped putting food out for the birds on a regular basis. I did feel mean, but haven't noticed any difference in the amount or variety of birds that visit and nest here. I do leave a lot of seed heads etc for them, and if it is very bleak in the winter I put out a couple of fat balls. Oh, and no more rats!
