My mum, who was both an avid birder and old enough to have seen off Mr Hitler when she was a FANY (if you insist on sniggering that's fine), always told me that the only time to put food out for the birds about the house was when there was snow or ice on the ground. She never fed them the rest of the year. I think her advice was pretty sound, really. It's the way I've always fed my birds anyway.

And this Phocal fella - what does he know about bird feeders? He's never had to use one himself, he just photographs the birds on his neighbour's feeder. Perhaps even his neighbour's neighbour's feeder. :D
