Bird Feeders

Bird Feeders

Different birds like to eat different food, so the more variety you offer, the wider will be the range of birds that can find a haven in your garden. With so many types of bird food on offer, it’s no surprise that we also have a wide range of feeders. Many of them are designed to be hung from the branches of a tree or from a wall bracket, keeping the birds safely away from any predatory cats that may be lurking nearby. The rest, including our bird tables, are made for mounting on poles, which are supplied.

Seed and peanut feeders are well known, but some of our feeders are specially designed to offer LIVE! food like mealworms and waxworms. These grubs are especially valuable sources of food for many species of bird. Robins in particular go crazy over them, but they can present a problem if you try to put them out on an ordinary bird table because they'll wriggle away! The answer is to use one of these special LiveFeeders. Each LiveFeeder in our range features our simple but effective mesh- floored dispenser. The sides of the dispenser are smooth and deep enough to keep the 'worms' from escaping but shallow enough to let the birds reach down and take their food. The mesh floor even sieves away the bran that we use to cushion the worms in transit!

This same LiveFeeder mechanism is also found in our 'triple feeders', where it joins compartments for offering seeds and peanuts. Remember that peanuts, while a good source of food for many birds, need their own type of feeder because they can cause some birds to choke when they try to eat them whole. All our peanut feeders have the necessary coarse mesh screen that allows the birds to nibble chunks off the peanuts but stops them trying to eat them whole. Finally, don't forget to ensure that your garden also has a supply of clean drinking water. If you don't have a garden pond, we think our handsome terracotta water dishes are ideal and they can double up as LiveFeeders, too!

As always, if you need any more information just give us a call on 0800 216990 (UK only) and we'll do our best to help.
