Does anyone else feed wild birds? I am new to this and only have one bird feeder as of now. I know this is not a great idea,but I throw a lot of feed down on the ground. I get crows and the number of crows keeps increasing by the day. They obviously don't let the smaller birds near the food. Should I stop throwing the food on the ground? If I go strictly to above ground feeders will that deter the crows from visiting? Will I always have crows? Any advice would be appreciated.
