My husband, Steve, goes to great lengths to make sure the bird population in our back yard is well taken care of.  We have multiple bird houses scattered around to accommodate the variety of feeding preferences, and he dutifully trudges through the snow all winter so that we may enjoy watching these small creatures from our window.  However, to his great frustration, much of the seed has gone to the squirrels and deer.  Two st...
