Want to borrow my cat? He's not interested in the little birds, he's been trying for the last 2 weeks to catch one of the pheasants that come in to feed . Yesterday he made one fly to the top of a sycamore tree. I'm sure he'd like pigeons too

I put cheap grain-based feed in a large pot saucer on the ground - the pigeons would much rather eat that than balance precariously on hanging feeders.
Just remember to get it in at night and put it out again in the mornings, otherwise you'll attract rats to the garden.
I got a cheap hanging basket : you know those flimsy mesh grid ones? And zip tied it to the top of my feeder that sat on the table. The grid is large enough for the little birds to hop in and out but stops the pigeons.
Perhaps you could get some sturdy thick mesh and create a frame around yours?
Chicken wire would also do the job. Any hanging basket will be fine.
As has been suggested - take a look on a similar thread we currently have here. Unwelcome Garden Visitors. You might find some tips there too flowerpower
