We have three feeders out and have to fill them twice a day. We can count at least 20 at at time, but there must be alot more for them to empty the feeders out that much. I have been wondering, when should we bring the feeders in so they will head south. I am located in north central Tennessee. I have heard that if you leave the feeders out too long that they may not leave in time to make the flight before cold weather. Is there any truth to this?

Mike,
wow! i only have the one feeder with around 6 to
8 birds at most. you are getting some great action. as far as bringing in the feeders i wait
until they leave on their own, they know when.
i`ll put it out in the spring when the nights are
above freezing, there won`t be alot of action
but when the early birds arrive they are hungry.
egh
ps: how many different breeds are you getting on your feeders?

egh, I don't know how to really tell the difference in them. I have some with red throats, But most of them are pretty well green all over. The wife was the one wondering about when to bring the feeders in. I figured they would have enough sense to know when to head south.
