Have recently moved and a big drawback of the new house is that I have virtually no windows overlooking the small garden. I have a few feeders out still, but would love to have one where I can actually see it.
A window feeder would be ideal, but the windows open onto the road, and I don't think the neighbours would be too happy if I set up a feeder that leaves lots of seeds/mess on the verge.
What are peoples' thoughts on the best feeders/feed that leaves as little mess as possible?
I don't think there is a mess free feeder for two reasons.
Unless someone can tell us otherwise, it may be a case of placing something to collect the dispelled food.
