How to Keep Pigeons Away from a Bird Feeder

I am trying to attract various small birds to my feeder. Is there anyone out there with any tips on how to keep pigeons away from this feeder. I have bought a feeder that has bars around it so that the small birds can get in but keeps the big ones out. That didn't work, the pigeons can fit their heads through the bars. Please help!

There are available, large diameter cages with holes small enough to prevent larger birds, especially pigeons, from reaching the feeders.These work extremely well. The other problem is that any food dropped from the feeder obviously falls to the ground and becomes a great feast for pigeons. The solution for that is to purchase and install trays that mount just under the cage and catch most of what would become dinner for pigeons. If any pigeons remain, it is usually only a few as there isnt enough feed to interest a flock. More maintenance is obviously required to keep the trays clean but it is worth it.
