By serving up the finest quality bird feed combined with quality bird feeders a wonderful variety of wild bird species will be attracted 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 if you have a lot of cats and other predators in your neighbourhood. If birds linger too long on flat and accessible surfaces (particularly paths) they are rather vulnerable to attack.
Bird feeders can be hung in trees or on poles to provide your honoured dinner guests with more of an advantage.
Replicating natural feeding habits
Bird feeders can also be fascinating for members of the household – especially children – to watch. 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, as it 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, but they all have one thing in common. They need to be kept clean and restocked regularly. These wonderful items will last a long time. So please try not to forget they are outside, with foodstuffs rotting inside them. This is the sort of thing that can be harmful to the very creatures you were hoping to help!
A rain guard over a bird feeder can preserve the contents longer and we are sure your visitors will thank you for it!
Also, keep in mind that all our wild bird feeders are very easy to move, clean and restock, for your continued enjoyment and to help you to protect your feathered friends.
The rest of this page looks at feeder options, all of which come with a lifetime guarantee, including many squirrel proof bird feeders to ensure your wild birds stay well fed.
