RE: Sparrow-preventing suet device (Follow-Up #2)

I'm not positive about that..Haven't seen any grackles near my feeder..

I did see sparrows feeding, but looking at it now, they can only access a small part of it, while other birds could probably hang upside-down..etc

NOTES:

The Magic Halo is usually used for hopper or seed feeders, but here's something I found on sialis.com :

"I got an e-mail from someone who made a homemade halo out of one of those umbrella hats you can buy at a dollar store. They attached the line, using duct tape between every two lines to keep them from getting tangled. It worked like a charm, and for the first time birds normally intimidated by HOSP are visiting the feeder. She also said it worked to deter starlings from a suet feeder."
