All Cicadas all the time

Long time bird feeder here.   The trick for stopping birds throwing feed all over is to use sunflower seed (favorite in Missouri) or another single type on the top feeder.  Then throw millet on the ground.    Birds tend to want what they want and throw everything else out of the way.   That mix bird food with everything in one bag is the devil.

No. The ground is not visible from my window, and the reason that I feed birds is to provide for my own entertainment. They aren't going to get rewarded unless they stage a performance for me.

The fence around the bottle's mouth works well, it is difficult to empty that compartment with a mere the swipe of a wing. Now my cardinals, finches, and other small birds can get their chance at it.

Above the bottle feeder are other feeders containing sunflower seeds, thistle, and suet.

The numbers mount.

Burn everything

By the way, I read that bit about life of cicadas - it is interesting!  :p
