List of benefits to using rain water in the garden

Grackles are aggressive and noisy; they bully the songbirds and hoard the food. TO DISCOURAGE GRACKLES – Since they are large and prefer platform feeders, eliminate those from your garden. If removing the platform feeder is not possible, fill it with striped sunflower seed. Grackles avoid that seed because of the thick, hard shell.

    We have no feeders, but they nest in our trees. They attack our cats and fly at us if we turn our backs on them. We have put up owls, bright flashy things in the trees and it doesn't help. We deal with this for 3 months a year... poor cats have dings in their heads from getting pecked.
