In answer to the question asked about what is different about a suet feeder in regards to sick siskins (sorry, can’t reply to a particular post), since taking down my seed feeders, I no longer have pine siskins. I haven’t seen one in my yard in years so I assume that’s why. Also, my suet feeder holds a single cake which allows me to take it down for cleaning more regularly since it is empty more often. I am astounded by how fast mold/mildew grows in the winter inside the feeder! I still clean up underneath occasionally as well but with no seed hulls, there is not much to clean up.
