I HAD 1 IN ALL OF 7 YEARS...THAT I CAUGHT WHEN I LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW. THE BLUE JAY WAS A TREAT.

I have a pole with 4 hooks on it for containers out in our front yard. The containers are always filled with bird seed. Mostly Sparrows show up, but we have had Doves, Black Birds, and more than one type of Black Bird. Once in a while I see a Wild Canary. Give that a try, and let us know if more birds show up!

Hi! I have jays that will come in a a few minutes if I throw some peanuts around my feeder. The squirrels don't get a chance, usually. I think they prefer sunflower seeds anyway. I need to try something different to see if I can get some different birds. I love them all, but would like to see what else would come.

Hi SSS..That would be fun to watch the babies. We still get the black birds here, and probably will for a little longer.

Hi from Florida--Wish we would cool down. It still gets in the 80's to 90's during the day. Our red-winged black birds are long gone. They raised some young ones which was fun to see. I think the suet feeder attracted them as I had never seen them at my feeder before I put up the suet. Have a good day, all!

I can't wait to hear his call again. I printed the recipes for the suet. One of the recipes was for the real hot days, and it won't melt. Great for where I live!

Thanks Katie. I haven't heard the Blue Jay for a couple of days, but it might be because of the smoke we have here. I hope to get a pic!

We have the red marking black birds as well, but I have never seen yellow. How nice! I was just thinking today of putting out some peanuts for the blue jays. Going to google and see what else they enjoy!

I can't remember if I mentioned earlier. We have had black birds with the white markings in their wings hanging around our front yard. A Blue Jay also showed up the last two weeks. I wondered where it had been. We have pine trees in our front yard, and usually there is always one hanging around. Makes my day!
