Siting

A quiet location with a good view from the house is normally the best place. This allows you to enjoy observing the garden birds while they feed with little disturbance.

Choose a site sheltered from extremes of weather, but where the birds have a good all-round view, so they can see that they are safe from predators while they feed.

The feeder should be safely away from cat ambush sites. A small bush or a tree about two meters from the feeder gives the birds somewhere safe to perch while they look to see if it is safe to feed, to ‘queue up’ for a place on the feeder, and to dash to if disturbed.

Sow Creative Woodcraft’s wildflower seed mix nearby to help encourage birds, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects.

Feeding

The stainless-steel dish is easily removable and can be regularly filled with suitable food for your garden birds. Regularly clean the stainless-steel bowl to prevent build-up of bacteria.

Maintenance

The feeder is made from quality timber sourced from locally, sustainably managed forest plantations. Non-toxic water based stains and sealants are used wherever possible in the manufacturing of our products. The coloured roof has been painted using a water based stain and is a decorative finish. The colour can be topped up periodically to maintain its appearance.

Observation

A good variety of garden birds all-year-round. Feeding bird’s gives delight to many people; Birds and gardens are a natural pairing, as anyone with an appreciation of either will tell you.
