  3. That, and viewing on my phone often leaves me questioning if I'm seeing things accurately.
  4. I think that's a Red-shouldered Hawk, @ronvan3. Wait for more input from those that actually know what they're talking about.

  11. I agree with all of the above, which is why I am still undecided.

  14. I have to admit that was my first thought, but I settled on undecided when I tried to sort it out. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ
  15. I also wonder if the pepper infused seed has as much, or more, of an impact on an animals sense of smell as it does taste. Most mammals have a better sense of smell than birds, with the exception of a few birds like vultures, so mammals are likely to turn their nose up at the peppery smell before they actually get around to tasting it. In my own personal experience, I found less birds at my feeders when I tried the peppered seed mixes and associated it with the birds preferring regular seed. I can't imagine how they choose their preferences if it's not because of some form of taste, even if it's not the same as our way of tasting.
  16. Does anyone else sense a sudden influx of the unknown coming in the very near future? I don't want to say we've just been jinxed, but....
  17. Birds must have their own way of determining preferred foods if they lack 'taste'. Just watch the Blue Jays toss sunflower and other seed out of the way so they can get to a kernel of corn or a piece of peanut in a mixed seed feeder. If they can't 'taste', they must have some other method of picking their seed preferences, or food preferences in general. If you watch birds searching for food, they will often pick something up and then drop it, pick something else up and drop it, repeating this process until they pick up something they like. They must be doing something with their mouths to determine if they like it or not. I just watch birds and have no education on the finer intricacies of how they work, but I think they are a lot like most any other animal, including humans, and find new food sources simply by putting things in their mouths and seeing if they like it.

  20. Welcome to Whatbird, @Jazzman. I imagine birds discover suet feeders as a food source the same way they discover seed feeders as a food source. Sunflower, and other seeds, aren't naturally found in plastic, glass, metal, or wooden feeders but the birds end up recognizing those feeders as a food source through exploration, I guess. I know it can often take a while for birds to recognize a new food source as a new food source, but eventually they realize what it is and others quickly catch on.
