How long does it take birds to find a new bird feeder? How many days has it been since I posted I hung my new coach light bird feeder I earned by collecting points from doing online surveys? I purposely hung it in the middle of the back yard in plain sight of the window where we eat so we could watch them enjoying their seed too. It is on a limb bare of leaves so whats the problem here? I'm thinking they are senior citizen birds. Maybe they are like us can't see as well as they once could. Guess they wouldn't need to hear for this. John seems to find his food real well and he is hard of hearing. Maybe they don't like change like me and John. They have a feeder in the front yard but it sometimes gets low on seed. Maybe their little wings have arthuriris ( heck I don't even know how to spell it bet someone will correct me on that) and they don't feel like flying from the front tree to the back. I find myself looking out the window several times a day but no birds yet.
