How can I attract my neighborhood's feral parakeets to my yard?
There are three scarlet-fronted parakeets
(I think) in my neighborhood. They've been here for years, are usually in some tall trees a block away, and spend a fair amount of time across the street from me. I live near Seattle. We don't have any pets, but the neighborhood cats do wander through our yard.
Is it possible for me to set up a bird feeder that will attract the parakeets to my yard?
How do I make sure that it won't be immediately taken over by our numerous crows, raccoons, and squirrels?
The crows are a special concern, as there are so frikkin' many of them and they're bullies.
