Garden Gate: Episode 162 – Grackles and Starlings

Next to Squirrels, Grackles and Starlings are the most bothersome to backyard bird feeders.  They eat so much, come in large flocks and scare away the prettier birds like cardinals.

During this episode of The Garden Gate I focus on types of seed and feeders that help to eliminate them from your garden and leave space for the birds you do like to enjoy.

Did you know that they don’t like safflower? That’s one way to discourage them. Also the Squirrel Buster Plus bird feeder has a few design tricks that also discourage the grackle.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch this episode and if you have further questions please feel free to drop by the shop.
