Starling Proof Bird Feeders
If you have a problem with rooks, pigeons, starlings or other large birds dominating smaller species and stealing all the food in your garden, we have an excellent range of caged bird feeders for you. The Guardian bird feeders on the next few pages are designed with a wide diameter cage to stop the long necks and beaks of starlings from reaching the food. These are not always particularly attractive but can be used throughout the year and particularly during springtime to give your smaller and more timid birds a safe feeding area.
None of our caged bird feeders can be guaranteed to be 100% effective because starving birds or smaller individuals will take greater risks to get bird seed. However they all provide a high level of deterrence and have been used with great success in our ARK HQ gardens and in customers’ gardens across the UK. See the reviews for individual reports or call us for specific help on the most suitable feeder for your needs.
We would also like to remind you that the national starling population has fallen dramatically over recent decades declining by over 50% since the 1970’s. For this reason we hope you will continue to offer a little food to help this beautiful species of bird especially when they appear in our gardens, typically during late May and June.
