That's what you say now... Once your pictures start looking this way, you will hate them.

They should, but limited to ground feeders. Doves, cardinals, grackles, starlings, bluejays, and possibly chickadees and house finches.
Thanks.
I think its a good opportunity for the kids to get really up and close.

BTW @pointer if you want to use standard feeders but specifically at your window, you have lots of options.

There's a bird seed that has very sharp food in it, that supposedly birds like, but squirrels do not. Anyone try this?

I sometimes coat my seed in cayenne pepper, with mixed results.

Orioles. No luck so far, but it often takes a while for new species to discover dedicated feeders.

Depends where you live, you won't find parrots or peacocks in the NY/Nj area. Basically most specie of birds found here is in the OP, compare to that.
have Quakers/monks all over the ocean Pkwy area in Brooklyn ,see them pretty much every day(actually had one as a pet for a couple of years)
Dumb people learn from their own mistakes,smart people,from the mistakes of others

Correct, they can't taste the heat.

Yup. A beautiful and interesting species, so it's worth the effort to pursue them.
