Grackles getting you down?

Take down your regular feeders, or whichever ones the grackles and/or starlings
are guarding.  In our case, we haven’t seen one finch at our black oil sunflower seed/suet feeder for at least a week.  Replace the seed in your feeder with safflower seed for a few weeks.  Usually, the grackles will leave the area for another source of seed and suet. For us, it has been a successful deterrent.  Fortunately we still have four other window feeders where the finches can still feed, but we are not fans of bully birds.
