    With birds beginning to nest, make sure they cannot fly off with whole peanuts as they feed them to babies in the nest and the babies can choke and die, same with large lumps of bread. They need to be in mesh type feeders so the adults take only small particles.

            Ideally once birds have young to feed, we should only put out feeders where whole large items cannot be taken away, I have stopped feeding now except for Nyger seed, which are tiny. An example is our feeders for the squirrels have whole nuts in, but the feeders are mesh or the box types have a lid on.

              Yer I put nyger too for goldfinches but they seem to prefer sunflower seeds. Maybe I should crush some up into nyger feeder.

                Finches both gold and green are happy with sunflower hearts on my plot.
                The tits like them too and we need tits to clear up the caterpillars later in the season when they have chicks.
