What kind of animals eat bird seed? My bird feeders are hung on one inch metal poles, five feet off the ground, away from trees and shrubs. In the morning I find the feeders on the ground with all the seed gone. Happens only during the night.
Squirrels and rats are notorious bird-seed thieves!
Some dogs and cats eat birdseeds. Odd but ture.
You probably have a squirrel getting into it. Or you may have a cat that is trying to get the birds that are feeding at the bird feeder. I've seen one of our cats jump 5 feet trying to get a bird on a feeder and knocked it over in the process while the bird got away.
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
