Come for dinner, little birdies...but not that way.

I would like to hang some bird feeders in my yard but our next door neighbors have 2 semi feral outdoor cats. Is there a way to feed the birdies without presenting the cats with a moveable feast? [more inside]

Should I be worried about rock salt being used near a bird feeder?

I have a suet cake in a small bush in my back yard. We got that huge snow storm here over the weekend, and yesterday someone shoveled the stone path right next to that bush and spread rock salt (100% sodium chloride according to the package) along it. Now I am panicking. [more inside]

Birdfeeder for 34th floor apartment?

We live on the 34th floor of an apartment with no balcony (there's an air-con ledge I suppose, but ours is generally inaccessible) near a patch of green with lots of birds. Eagles and ospreys and the like fly by outside our windows often. Our windows have permanent grilles because of the curious toddler. We'd love to have a birdfeeder attached very firmly (no suction cups) to our window grilles on the outside. Is this possible and would it work in attracting birds? What are the problems in apartment birdfeeders?

Where do the birds go when it rains?

BirdFeederFilter: When it's gloomy and rainy, I don't see any birds at my birdfeeder for days on end. Then as soon as it's sunny, they're all over the place. What gives? What do they do on rainy days, just forage near their nest? Don't birds gotta eat when it rains?
