Aw, the Mr and the Mrs at the grape jelly!

LP, if the feeders are being hogged by bigger birds or squirrels, it's not unusual for other birds to eat from the ground. We've got so many birds this spring that I fill all the feeders every morning and then throw another gallon and a half on the ground along the edge of the shrubs to accommodate everyone. If squirrels are a problem, some people will put out a squirrel feeder and fill it with unsalted peanuts-in-the-shell to keep them busy. Then the birds can eat in peace...at least till the peanuts are gone.
