When should I feed birds?
It is best to provide food sources all year long. February through August, birds are nesting and need extra food for breeding and rearing baby birds. September through March is a difficult time for birds, as many natural sources of food disappear in the winter months.
How much do birds eat?
Birds have a high metabolic rate and an average body temperature of 100 degrees (F). They need to eat constantly to store up energy for the winter months and to burn off excess heat during the summer months. Birds will eat their own body weight daily.
How long does it take birds to find a new feeder?
Generally, it can take anywhere from one hour to four weeks. Most people get birds on a new feeder after only a few days, especially if there are already bird feeders in the neighborhood. In a new development with no trees or cover, it could take longer.
How do I keep squirrels off my feeder?
Make sure that the feeder is at least six feet above the ground and ten feet away from any launching point like a deck rail, tree or wire. Mount a canister, also known as a baffle, on the pole beneath the feeder. There are also hanging baffles that you can place over the feeder if it’s hanging in a tree. Also, try feeding Wild Delight® Sizzle N’ Heat® to birds. It is made with chili peppers, which birds don’t mind but squirrels find too spicy. Lastly, offering squirrels some of their own food never hurts. Try Wild Delight® Crunch N’ Nut® Squirrel Food, Corn on the Cob or one of our peanut mixes.
Should I provide birds with water?
Clean, fresh water should be made available at all times. During the summer, drinking and bathing are important for birds. In the winter months, in many areas, natural water sources freeze. Use a bird bath heater during the winter.
What’s the best backyard environment for birds?
Birds prefer to live and eat in areas where cover in trees and shrubs is readily available.If possible, provide a backyard environment with lots of lush vegetation to improve your chances of attracting birds.
