During the winter my sunflower/safflower feeders get emptied about every other day. Now my two suet feeders seems to go quite fast, a couple of blocks a week. The seed feeders last a week or so now.
During the winter it's mainly wood peckers and nut hatches on the suet with a few chickadees stopping by. Now it's quite popular with most all of them - woodpeckers, nut hatches, chickadees, finches and red wing black birds. Cardinals are not interested at all.
The only one I have is the busiest. Black caps, various sparrows, jays, cardinals, %$@& blackbirds. Underneath the feeder is where the action is. Squirrels, rabbits, and a new addition in the last week, an opossum. I too have a cat problem. My next door neighbor lets her cat out for hours. I asked her to keep it inside, explaining that cats kill things (not their fault-it is what they do) told her about the nuisance animal ordinance. She was not impressed. I then informed her that I will trap it if I have to, and would she prefer a live trap or a leg hold? It went downhill from there.
I guess I have two feeders. Forgot about the Hummers. Very busy.
