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.
