On 1/30/14 Jim Gunn and I built a bird feeder. It has 6 different spots filled with different foods such as sunflower seeds, millet, suet, corn, thistle seed and bread so that we could see what birds like what foods. And then we put it outside on the deck rail. We have had house sparrows, chickadees, starlings, blue jays and juncos. We had our bird feed in the closet and the mice got in to it and ate some!
