"I must have gone through twenty pounds of Wild Bird Mix feeding deer."

*giggle* Well, that doesn't sound too good, but it's kinda sad they have so much trouble finding food. I'm sure I'd feel the same if they were eating up everything in my yard.

Primula, you make a great deer advocate. :)

I think they come eat bird food simply because it's a lot easier and faster than foraging in the woods. They raid the feeder (or try) even when the weather is mild and there's stuff they'd normally browse still growing. Bird seed is a highly concentrated food compared to the stuff they usually eat. Like me preferring a dense high-calorie nut-studded granola bar to a high fiber cereal that tastes like nothing, or shredded cardboard.
