Feeding the Birds isn’t Complicated
Birds find their food and water sources by sight. Simply scattering seed on the ground will attract birds and works well for ground-feeding birds. By using a feeder, though, seed is kept fresh and doesn’t readily spoil. And using different kinds of feeders, with different types of foods, and positioning them to mimic where birds find their favorite foods naturally will attract more birds to your yard.
If you’re wanting to start feeding the birds or looking to expand the offerings at your bird feeding station, you can learn more about the different types of feeders here.
In addition to matching the type of food you’re offering and the types of birds you’re wanting to see, here are some additional defining characteristics that make a good feeder.
Be practical and easy to use, including easy to fill, easy to clean, and easy to hang or mount
Provide good visibility of the birds while they are feeding
Be made of durable materials and able to withstand a fall, poor weather, be rust-resistant and able to withstand squirrel damage
Materials should be safe for the birds to use and environmentally friendly, well-constructed so that they perform the intended function consistently, and enjoyable to use regularly
