There are numerous ways in which to get seed to our bird community, and believe it or not the birds do not care what we put their food into as long as they are able to get to it. However, our personal tastes and human nature will generally bring out our creativity and decorating skills in making our garden look wonderfully appealing to the eyes, through just what kind of a feeder (s) we put in our garden.
There are bird feeders that come in an array of bright cheerful colors. A bird feeding station can be made out of tin, brass, steel, wood, plastic, ceramic and glass. A bird feeding station can be a bowl set upon a pedestal or some sort of holder. They can hang from the branches of a tree, off a fence or from a Sheppard’s hook or arbor. They can come in numerous styles.
Just as numerous as the style of feeders is the type of bird feed available. The most liked by birds is black oiled sunflower seeds or peanuts in the shell. Safflower seeds are also well liked. Thistle seed is popular; however you will need to purchase a thistle feeder, because the seed is very small.
