Bird feeders are an important supplemental source of food for birds. The type of feeder you choose and the feed you provide determine the type of birds that are attracted.
No matter what type of feeder you choose, there are a few basics to keep in mind:
Three basic types of bird feeders are available: hopper, tube and platform. Any feeder you buy should be easy to fill, empty and clean. Style variations are available in all three types:
Hopper feeders have a lot of different styles, but the basic style looks like a barn, gazebo or covered bridge:
Platform feeders may be pole-mounted, hung or placed on the ground on fold-out legs:
Look for feeders that are designed to attract a specific type of bird. For example, hummingbird and bluebird feeders are only accessible by these birds. These feeders, like other styles, are usually designed to be squirrel-resistant.
Feeding in the warm months can encourage some birds to nest nearby, and many birds take on their most colorful plumage during the breeding season. Regardless of whether you feed only during the winter or year-round, be consistent with your feeding regimen. It is only fair to those birds who have come to rely on your feeders as a source of food.
Summer feeding requirements are slightly different from those of winter. When feeding birds, be sure that during the winter months your feeders are not left empty as birds will rely on this food.
