    Question Filling up the bird feeders ... yes, this is a real question.

    Well, we use their feathers so this question is 'somewhat' fishing related.

    Fall has fell and Winters coming. During the 'warmer weather' I let the birds empty them and take them down. To the question, what time of the year/temperature do you folks (who put them out) start to refill the things?

    Amazing how fast they can go through a full feeder!

    I've just started today seeing birds from the high country in my yard, I'm going to get the feeders back up this weekend.

    Thumbs up Re: Filling up the bird feeders ... yes, this is a real question.

    Given how far south of me you are, sounds like time to hit the 'Big R' store and get bags of food and get with the program.

    Gotcha, sticky pad that I use for 'shopping lists' has it as the top item. At 71 you think of 'something you need' you'd better write it down ... you'll never remember in the store. Fun part is finding something not on the list, a 'desert treat' and do a 'SO YES!' Last was a fresh baked Apple Pie! And ... THEN a small box of Vanilla Ice Cream .. then damned near across the store for a small block of Cheder Cheese.

    That was dinner ..... BLISS!

    The birds here are still fending for themselves, the leaves are still up but soon as they drop I'll fill the hoppers.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I don't start feeding the birds until their natural wild foods are gone or buried by snow

    Mine get setup and filled towards the end of November. The only reason i don't start earlier is due to the bears. When I used to set them up in October at least once a week they would tear them down and the cages I put my suet mix for the woodpeckers would be ripped off the tree and gone never to be found again! Since I started with the later setup there has been no more problems. Basically by me you have to let them fill up for there winter nap before you give the birds their treat!
