Bad Birds at Feeder

Does anyone have an idea of how to discourage crows, magpies and other large birds from taking over my bird feeder, excluding the smaller song birds? I've been using wild bird feed from Costco, which the little guys love, but so do the big guys. Not only do the little guys not get in as much as they were, but I'm going through feed at a horrendous pace (about a quart a day.) I've thought of putting out a sign: "Compacts Only; Violators Will be Owled", but I'm guessing these bums would flout the posting, and it would be tough to train an owl to be sufficiently selective. Thanks for ideas...and no, I will not consider use of explosives.
