Imagine my surprise when I glanced up Sunday morning to find a big ol' turkey standing on the deck rail peering in the window. He nonchalantly strutted to the feeder and started chowing seed. Evidently the bird feeder's new height was just right for him.
The feeder is certainly squirrel proof. It does a good job at discouraging the bigger birds, like blue jays and blackbirds. But obviously not so much for really big birds! (Nor for other marauding wildlife that can reach in without touching the perch.)
