Stopping Wood Pigeons on bird feeder
Have been trying for ages to stop Wood Pigeons from getting on my hanging mesh feeder without hampering other birds.The Woodies would just sit on the feeder until everything was gone so other birds didn't get a look in!
I am using a wire hanging basket under the tray which nestles inside.Originally I had the basket on the top but nothing used the feeder.
Since I have had it like this no woodies have used it but all the other birds have including blackbirds,robin,sparrows,and starlings.
Seems to work for me!
