Bird feeders are particularly valuable in urban areas as it can be difficult for them to find food due to reduced natural foraging habitat.
Bird feeders as well as bird baths or ponds can make a difference.
Many birds fly great distances when they migrate in spring and autumn. Having access to seed in bird feeders may help them survive the journey, and increase their reproductive success.
Some birdseed can be tainted with pesticides, which can be deadly for our feathered friends. So be careful. It is also important to be mindful of competition with nesting birds too.
For easy hanging, hang over branches.
