After a few pecks at the seeds, they put their heads sideways and scoop it up with the bottom beak. Then they carry it out to the grass, drop it and eat one by one.
The robins told me it was time for seeds and then were chased away by ravens and magpies. I’m trying to decide when to feed and when to take it away to discourage bears. I fed the gophers and the ravens mobbed the holes to get that seed. I guess I’ll put it in a tube and drop it deeper.
