About Bird Feeder
In today’s concrete world we hardly find trees. Due to lack of shelter, even the birds have migrated. We hardly find some birds around us flying gracefully. Seeing them we definitely feel like feeding them. So here is once such accessory which helps you in feeding the birds, it is Bird Feeder. These feeders attract a great variety of birds. It may take from one day to several months before the birds in your area discover your new feeder. If you have not yet started feeding the birds, here are some of the suggestions to start.
- It is important that you use a bird feeder based on the birds in your area
- Birds generally find their food by sight. So, place the feeder where it will be visible to birds.
- Sprinkling some seeds on the ground or on top of the feeder will let birds know that the seeds are for feeding.
- Clean and change the seeds at last once in a month if the birds have not begun eating.
- Birds tend to choose their food by preference.
If birds find a relatively safe habitat with fresh food and water, chances are they will come back frequently. The best way to attract a variety of birds is by providing a variety of food and placing the bird feeders where birds prefer to feed. Birds need a protective cover like a house. A bird house will provide birds a choice for feeding, hiding, courting, and nesting.
Once you’re ready with a bird feeder, the next step is to hang your bird feeder. Keep in mind that birds like cover and shelter. Bird feeders are best hung in a place where the birds feel safe from predators.
Best Seeds for Bird Feeding
The seeds that attracts the widest variety of birds and so become the mainstay for most backyard bird feeders is sunflower seeds. In general, mixtures that contain red millet, oats, and other “fillers” are not attractive to most birds and can lead to a lot of waste, as the birds sort through the mix. Below are some of the seeds which can be used in the feeder:
- Black-oil sunflower seed
- Good Mixed Seed
- Niger/Thistle Seed
- Cracked Corn
- Meal Worms
Benefits of Feeding Birds
Education: Feeding birds can be a fascinating educational activity for all ages. By changing food types, you can learn more about the birds that visit. Observing the birds will help you learn about behaviours, identifications, personalities and other aspects of your local avifauna i.e. the birds of your geographical space and how birds change season by season.
Insect Control: Birds eat much more than seed, suet, and Nigar. Feeding birds in your backyard also invites them to feast on the insects, worms, snails and spiders in your landscape. It can provide ideal organic pest control without the need for toxic insecticides or other harmful chemicals.
