Pigeons Take Over - Again

A project log for Vending Machine for Birds

Simple, inexpensive bird feeder that dispenses peanuts in exchange for dropping stuff in a hole. A vending machine for clever birds.

Pigeons have dominated the feeder since I moved it out back. A few jackdaws come check it out when the pigeons are not camping on the feeder, but the pigeons have basically taken possession. They now understand the basics and can use the bottlecap magazine. I probably need to find a new location with fewer pigeons if I want to get any corvid action.

The eggs in the nest out front have finally hatched today. Here is one of the parents feeding a tiny pigeon chick.
