If you offer the finest quality bird feed combined with quality bird feeders you will attract a wonderful variety of wild bird species to your garden. Providing nutritious, quality bird food is also a wonderful way of keeping those wild creatures healthy.
Though standard bird tables and other flat surfaces can serve as handy “dining tables”, there are several good reasons to use a bird feeder.
Keeping birds safe as they feed
One of the main reasons to opt for this method of “birdwatching and conservation” is that feeders keep your feathered friends safer. Especially if you have a lot of cats and other predators in your neighbourhood. If birds linger too long on flat and accessible surfaces they are vulnerable to attack.
Feeders can be hung in trees or on poles to provide your honoured dinner guests with more of an advantage.
Replicating natural feeding habits
Feeders can also be fascinating for members of the household. Children especially love to watch and participate. Birds will find ingenious ways to peck at their goodies in bird food feeders. You could well see some acrobatics and clever flying techniques as they swoop in to enjoy their tasty treats.
Your visiting birds could well enjoy the challenge of reaching into your squirrel buster feeder for example. It closely replicates natural food foraging behaviour.
Bird feeders for small birds have been designed to make it possible for juveniles to gain access. Even when they are new to flying and have not yet “earned their wings”!
Bird feeder etiquette
Below you can find details of carefully designed bird feeders. All have one thing in common. They need to be kept clean and restocked regularly.
