Ugh! That’s always a dilemma, Carol. To feed or not to feed. HOSP typically don’t “prefer” BOSS, but they certainly will eat it if nothing else is available. Maybe taking the feeders in temporarily will encourage them to move on, and then you can put the feeders back out…OR, maybe you can use the opportunity to set up the repeating trap with the seed they DO prefer, and clean out the population. Many people have found that winter is a great time for trapping. :TwoHosp:
