Birds of a feather don't flock to my house.

What gives? I hung up my brand-new fancy bird feeder on Saturday and the birds haven't found it. What does it take to get their attention?

1) By "brand-new fancy bird feeder," I mean "the empty bird feeder that the previous tenants of this apartment made and hung outside the living room window, which has been empty the entire time I've lived here, thus leading one to believe that it was once full of seed and the birds once ate all the seed."

2) I totally researched bird seed on the internet and therefore filled the feeder with black oil sunflower seeds because the internet told me that most birds like that best.

3) The birds haven't found me yet. Seriously. What gives?

That comment about cats offends me.

I think they don't come because they've given up on that empty bird feeder and told all their friends not to bother. That's the way with hummingbirds, at least. If the feeder isn't full right when they start looking for nectar, they write you off for the year. Hopefully the other birds will be smarter--or more desperate than the hummingbirds.

Do squirrels count for your class, or is it only birds? Whenever I put up feeders I tend to attract more squirrels than birds.

If all else fails, you might just try the old fashioned pine-cone-peanut-butter bird feeder. Those have always worked well at my house.

Best wishes!
