    A flock of Juncos flew in the duck run several minutes ago. Discovered the bowl of Flockraiser. Now the Juncos are staging sneak attacks. The ducks chase them off and the Juncos come back. Wish I had a video camera!

    That is one reason I feed the wild birds it does help keep them from raiding the duck feed. I will throw scratch out for the doves& Juncos and they even get some of it if the chickens don't find it first. We have Juncos aren't they a pretty bird. Would be a cute video.

    We have bird feeders....they just discovered the duck feed and seem to prefer it. Yes, they are pretty. Video would be comical as well!

    Chipmonks are what visit our feeders alot. Squrriels once in a while. but as long as I keep the wild bird feeders full the birds don't usually mess with the duck feed. Maybe because I use the FR pellets instead of crumble. Do you use crumble or pellets?

    We use pellets. Ducks wasted too much of the crumbles.
