Very interesting set up you describe. It is almost the same feeder setup they
have at Whites Memorial in Litchfield.
I also believe it is our own responsibility to make our feeder offerings as
safe as we can for the birds that come to visit. Doing so, we might be close to
the same percentage of safety nature offers feeding birds out there where they

One of the better feeder locations I have seen was at Shaver's Creek
Environmental Center near Tussey Mountain, PA. The only view of the feeder
is from inside their building at the viewing window. From that window,
behhind the feeder, all you see is bushes, of heights taller than the
feeder is high. From outside the building, the feeder is not visible. The
bushes surrounding the feeder at the corner of the building connect to the
shrub/tree line nearby. The birds have a safe entry/exit route and all
angles of attack by raptors are thwarted.
