Whether you are thinking about getting bird to fly to you yard or looking for a good project, take some time to browse images of bird feeders. There are so many of them out there, that you are likely to get lost at first. However, feeders are actually quite easy to choose. The first thing you must learn is which birds you are choosing the feeder for. Different birds might require different feeders depending on their size and food preferences. Also you must choose whether you want a hanging feeder or the one placed on a stand. Once you decide these two things the choice will be significantly narrowed.
Once the feeder is ready you will probably want to learn what to feed a wild bird. This is a complicated question and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Some people believe that the birds will be satisfied with just one type of food. This is not true. Birds are complicated creatures and need a good diversity of vitamins to stay healthy. Most of the vitamins can be found in nature, however, some still need to be provided to the birds, especially in the winter times. In the cold times, there are less and less vitamins available, so birds heavily rely on the bird food provided by people.
Once you learn what to feed birds with, you should carefully go about placing the food into the feeders. Birds can create a lot of mess and become a real nuisance to any yard owner. Daily cleaning of the messy bird seed on the ground will unlikely seem like a good time spending to anyone. So don’t put too much food into the feeders. If there is a chance to buy no mess bird food, go for it. This will save you a lot of cleaning time and will give the birds more vitamins.
