I still think it looks like Carl Fredricksen in Up. Birds probably scared of being eaten. Maybe they saw the movie.

That looks like fire coming out of the chimney.

Try putting black sunflower seeds in the feeder instead of the cracked corn and millet.

GUIDO.

=================
Those cheap little feeders are never designed right, just made to look pretty. You need to paint it in the fall or winter so the paint smell is less by spring. The roof line should be designed to overhang the feed tray so rain does not drop into the tray.
Toss it and make a better one.

I made one that is now 20 years old (made with cedar so no rot) and works thru hard rains or winter storms. I made a squirrel baffle so no squirrels can climb it. Feeders with trays work well with black oil sunflower seeds, which attract cardinals, jays, grosbeaks, nuthatch, etc.
