Our two teacup birdfeeders in the canoe garden didn’t fare too well over the winter. Mostly the problem was the squirrels, who learned to climb the copper pipe to get the sunflower seeds. One of the feeders was badly bent and another had a broken saucer. We had an extra one (we made a few last year), so I replaced one, and added the saucer from the bent up one to the feeder with the broken saucer, and now we have two good ones again. I like these feeders because the sunflower seeds attract cardinals to our front window and they’re a treat to watch.
