A few years ago, when these were taken, feral pigeons were the major consumers of our bird food. The photos show how agile and resourceful they can be. The baffle above the feeder in the first photo (actually a plastic picnic plate) succeeded more or less in deterring squirrels, but it was only when we changed all our feeders that pigeons stopped coming.
