I caught her in the act. I’d been wondering how the birds could be snarfing up the seed that fast. Looked out the front window just now and a doe, who had just finished eating corn at the yard feeder, walked straight to the hanging bird feeder and started bumping it around with her nose.

My feeders hang 5 ft off the ground. They stand on there back legs and lick seed out of my bird feeders.

I use scratch grains and mix it with a milo/whole corn. I feed corn away from the yard to keep the deer out of the yard.
