Bird feeders - a quick guide

Bird feeders are containers or platforms for feeding wild birds. A simple concept: add bird food to your feeder and watch the birds flock. However with so many different types of feeder and food to choose from it's easy to be baffled.

Here are seven top tips to help attract wild birds to your new bird feeder:
  1. Offer a variety of wild bird food
  2. Use different feeders across your garden
  3. Locate feeders in a safe, sheltered and quiet place away from predators
  4. Regularly replenish feed
  5. Keep feeders clean
  6. Choose food your local birds like most
  7. Provide fresh water in a shallow bowl or bird bath

Where to put feeders for birds

Locate your bird feeders, tables and feeding stations:

  • Away from places where predators can hide
  • Within darting distance to safe havens e.g. trees, hedges
  • In sheltered places with protection from strong winds
  • Where they won't be easily disturbed

Different types of feeder are better suited to different locations. For example, hanging feeders are great on trees and hooks, ground, window and wall mounted feeders are self explanatory!
