Let's see...they bury seeds in the ground. They dig seeds up and eat them.
Do they know the difference between a DB rhizome and a seed? I don't know.

Basically it's compost. More risk to the birds if you don't clean up under
feeders on a fairly regular basis. They eat droppings as well as seeds and
spread several diseases that way. It's a good idea to clean feeders in
bleach water every month or so for the same reason. (You'll also be able to
