Bird Feeding Stations

By feeding birds, especially through the harsh winter months and when they are bringing up their young, you will not only be doing your bit to arrest the decline in our native British songbirds but also you will get endless pleasure from watching them come and go. The secret is to have as many types of food available as possible as different species have different requirements. Consider four types of food as a sensible minimum – mixed birdseed, fat balls, peanuts and water. Other possibilities exist if you are trying to attract specific types of bird for instance niger seed for goldfinches or mealworms for robins. Seeds and mealworms are best presented on a table whereas peanuts and fatballs are conveniently put into specific feeders. Water obviously requires some sort of dish. If you have cats in you neighbourhood you must site your feeding station away from cover from which these predators can pounce and catch the birds. Other than this, site your station where it can be seen from a window – usually kitchen or lounge, so that you can watch the action. See how many different species you can attract. Feeding stations make ideal presents, especially for the elderly who especially appreciate the birdlife and may have more time to study them.
