Well, the color of those bittersweet berries looks really suspicious. Plus I know I've got some around here. That seems like the likely culprit. If I didn't have to work, I could watch for the offending bird(s). I fear it may be (gack) Starlings.
Thanks all for helping me out with this!

I filled it this morning with hulled sunflower seeds, golden raisins, walnut pieces, blueberries and a peanut butter and cornmeal dough that I make. When I brought the feeder in tonight, it has numerous bright orange-red pieces in it. It almost looks like these are the skins from some kind of berry. Along with this are smaller seeds, about the size of millet but a little pointier. Everything is soaking wet, of course. Dare I ask what this might be? The only meager idea that is floating around in my brain is that it might be bird poop from berries clearly not available in my tray feeder. Anybody know - or have hypotheses - on what this is?
