Large bird feeders are necessary for those who are installing bird aviaries for industrial use, as well as for those who want to attract a lot of wild birds to their territory. If there is no chance to make a large feeder on you own, you can buy them at a specialty stores. Large bird feeders should be chosen very carefully in order to fit the special needs of the birds they are purchased for.
Large capacity bird feeders have to be properly maintained in order for the food not to become a danger to the birds. Proper cleaning is absolutely necessary. It is also very important to change the food in the bird feeders as often as possible. If the birds didn’t consume all the food you left for them, it doesn’t mean it can be left there for a long time. The outdoor feeders are impacted by humidity conditions. Food will get wet and bacteria will start spreading. Many birds die due to improper food maintenance. If the bird feeder doesn’t have a roof over it, it is not the best bird feeder on the market. Outdoor feeders must be protected from rain, sun and snow in order for the food to stay fresh. Accordingly a covered feeder is the only good choice for any bird.
Large squirrel proof bird feeders can be purchased in order to keep the squirrels from eating bird food. The larger the feeder, the harder it is to make it squirrel proof. Accordingly, such feeder must be placed as far from the tree as possible, not to allow the squirrel to climb toward it. If a pole is used to hold a feeder, make sure it is smooth, so the squirrel can’t climb it to reach the food. A bird feeder must be protected from animals and insects as well as possible.
