I like the birds an feeders, but they poop on my porch.yuck
Yes they do. So, what I do is the hummingbird feeders are on my deck (so to speak) The other feeders are out in my flower
bed, to avoid the mess.
(I did the finch feeders on the deck 1 year..it was as you say, a mess.)
PS: I have a large shepherd's hook attached to my deck railing and that is where I hang one of my hummingbird feeders.
Rod made me a bird feeder "holder" (name escapes me now) it holds 2 feeders, which is in the center of my large flower
bed. Then I also have a smaller shepherd's hook in the same flower
bed for my other hummingbird feeder.
