You've helpfully posted this recommendation at least twice before, and it has always been near the top of my Experiments list. Will definitely try it next year!
In my area, birds feed on Amelanchiers more depending on the surrounding cover. In a local library's courtyard, where there is nothing but groomed lawn & parking lot for "cover", the berries dry to raisins on the juneberry bush. Friends' prairie-landscaped yard in town ripen their juneberries, but then watch out for the robins! My yard is in the country/woods, and the catbirds prefer this.
