Which Type of Bird Feeder
Is Right For You?
When looking to buy a backyard bird feeder, there are a few considerations.
- What types of birds are seen in my garden and perhaps, what others, might I be trying to attract?
- What types of food am I looking to offer? Specific types of seeds, mixes, fruit or suet?
- Where do I want to fix my bird feeder? Hang it from a branch, fix it to a window, or place it closer to the ground?
