| I bought a second one at Lowe's for $7.|
Multiple birds sit on it and eat, and the feeder is easy to fill.
The squirrels dominated most of the feeding stations because they stood on two of them while eating from the hanging feeder from Lowe's. That also tied up the suet hanging from the squirrel-proof feeder filled with finch seed. Only the squirrels were eating for a time.
I needed sunflower seed, so I stopped at Lowe's for a large bag and looked for a second hanging feeder, which is popular with the small birds and easy to fill. The price dropped from $10 to $7, so I grabbed one, bought a rake, and tossed a bag of seed on the cart.
My ideal is the set-up at the home of Michigander, who has an array of feeders near a large window, where his cat sits and watches patiently. Sassy ignores our animal life altogether.

Now we have:
- Two hanging feeders with sunflower seeds.
- One platform feeder with corn.
- One finch feeder with thistle seed.
- One Jackson EZ Bird Swing.
- Two large, hanging baskets of suet.
