It occurs to me to suggest looking for other feeders.

I am limited to installing hummingbird feeders (picture here of one: ) but I seem to recall a special seed feeder for situations such as the one described.

They are weighted such that a light bird will open the hatch and be able to eat but if a heavy bird like a starling lands, the hatch goes past the "open" position to closed.

I am probably not describing these effectively. Maybe someone else can give it a try or even a link. I'm out of time.
