I do want a bird feeder for the patio, love watching them. We don't have any squirrels to worry about. I won't get metal as it would get way too hot in the summer sun.

Hey, we have metal and its hotter than the hinges of hell here in the summer...those cardinals and other little birds don't mind it at all.

The birds probably wouldn't care, they walk on the hot pavement and the metal parking cover - it would just bother me. LOL

Remember in Cancun, there's an old joke "how do you know its hot? Its when the iguana's carry sticks in their mouths to walk across the road on". Yep, the birds could care less. They are birds, not humans!

@tortiecat thanks. I have never heard of niger seed.
I never had any luck with it. Finally the owner of the bird seed store admitted that even he had given up on it.
Now for hummingbirds I have a feeder in the front of the house and one in the back. Our ruby throated birds are extremely possessive about "their" feeder and spend a lot of time squabbling over it. I suspect that they belong to that other political party.

@Marie do you have a bird bath?

Not yet. But I want to get one. For right now, I keep a shallow tub of water out side. Figure animals can use it for drinking too. A birdbath will have to wait until spring, though. Between the deck, the birdfeeder and a supply of seed, I am kind of tapped out right now. Have to tighten up for a few months
