Feeding wild birds is an enjoyable experience that allows you to watch wildlife in your backyard. Additionally, feeding birds helps them to thrive during the harsh winter months when food is scarce.
In addition to our complete selection of wild bird feeds, we carry a selection of suet cages and bird feeders from trusted pet supply companies including Heath Manufacturing, Homestead Bird Feeder Company, Little Farmer, North States, and Woodstream. With wooden feeders, platform feeders, wire feeders, hummingbird feeders, and copper feeders available, you can pick one that appeals to you aesthetically and that also appeals to the birds you wish to attract. We also stock a number of bird feeder hooks to assist you in hanging them.
Utilize a hanging feeder for perching birds and a platform feeder for ground feeding birds. Many birds who are primarily insect feeders prefer to eat suet from suet feeders.
Squirrels and chipmunks can prove to be more than a pest around a bird feeder. Not only do they eat large quantities of the bird food themselves, they also scare birds away from the feeder. If you struggle with squirrels, look for a "squirrel-proof" feeder that makes it difficult, if not impossible, for the squirrel or chipmunk to eat. Some feeders make the bird food inaccessible to any animal without a beak, while others utilize doors which close when animals heavier than a bird tries to use the feeder.
To ensure the safety of your wild bird population, make sure that you monitor the area for predatory birds and domestic house cats. If they begin hanging around your feeder, remove it for a few days.
