Following Tanith's thread about pigeons -
Around here we have mainly pigeons, magpies, sparrows coaltits and a few blackbirds
We have a hanging bird feeder, and a sheltered wooden stand for other food for them. But the greedy pegeons hog the feeder with seeds in it and the poor sparrows and coaltits wait patiently on the fence until the bullies have finished.
The blackbirds seem more interested on feeding from the earth, and the magpies appreciate the crusts etc in the covered stand.
Any ideas about how to stop these pigeons from depriving the poor small birds of their sustenance?
Husband says stick a notice on the feeder saying "Pigeons not allowed - Sparrows and Coaltits only"
But I don't think they can read.
