  1. 4/8 – Like Norman, I am at a disadvantage for this quiz by not being American. For example, the birds I feed definitely include sparrows, which certainly count as a native species! Today’s garden visitors have also included starlings, woodpigeons, collared doves, pied wagtails, blackbirds, a great tit, a wren and a robin (European version!)

    • This kind of feeder protects seeds fairly well against the weather and bird droppings, but if the seed within the hopper does get wet, bacteria and fungus can thrive. Hopper feeders are attractive to most feeder birds, including finches, jays, cardinals, buntings, grosbeaks, sparrows, chickadees, and titmice; they’re also squirrel magnets. Many hoppers can hold enough seed to last for several days, which can make them very convenient for people, but dangerous for birds if the seed within is allowed to get wet. Most hopper feeders are much harder to clean than tray feeders. Hopper feeders can be mounted on a pole or suspended. Again, a squirrel baffle is important if you don’t want to feed them.
